Banana-Bran-Chocolate Chip Muffins

1Cup Boiling Water
1 Cup Wheat Bran

1/2 cup mashed ripe banana (1 small)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp vanilla

1 cup flour (whole wheat or all purpose or mixture)
1/3 cup skim milk powder
1+1/2 tsp baking powder
1+1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

1/2 cup MINI chocolate chips (sometimes I use blueberries, fresh or frozen)

in large bowl, pour boiling water over bran; let stand for one hour. Mix in banana, sugar, egg, oil, vanilla

Mix together flour, skim milk powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to bran mixture, stirring just until combined but NOT overmixed. QUICKLY add in about 1/2 cup MINI chocolate chips

Spoon into lightly greased or paper lined muffin cups, filling to top. Bake in 400F oven for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden and tops are firm to the touch. Check with a toothpick also, if you’re not certain about doneness.

Makes about 12 muffins
