Ingredients

3 cups Fiber One cereal

2 tbsp. ground flax seeds
1 tbsp. cinnamon (or to taste)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/4 cup applesauce (or one little pot)
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup tea (or water or skim milk)
3/4 cup low fat cottage cheese (or yogurt)


Methods/steps

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. In a large bowl combine the applesauce, tea, and cereal and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Cereal should start to feel heavy and squishy. In a stand mixer or with a hand mixer on a low-to-medium speed, mix the cereal mixture until it is fairly mushy, much like the consistency of mashed potatoes. If you are short on time or your hand mixer gets bogged down, try putting the mixture in the blender or food processor. Add flax and mix well. Add egg and vanilla and blend well. Add the remaining ingredients one by one, leaving the cottage cheese until last. Mix well. Batter should be thick and fairly lumpy with a fibrous texture. Transfer batter to muffin pans and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.
