      3 c - All Bran cereal
      2.5 c - hot water
      1.5 tsp - baking powder
      1 box ‘Better Crocker Sweet Reward’ brownie mix *I usually can’t find this, so use whatever ff/lf brownie mix the in the store

      Soak cereal in water for 5 min (will be pasty)
      Add brownie mix and baking powder; mix well
      Line muffin tins with linter or spray with Pam
      Divide mixture into 24 muffins
      Bake in preheated oven 350 degrees F for 20-25 min.

      If you choose to add 1/2 bag of chocolate chips, add 1 pt. Otherwise – this makes a lot – you can stick them in the freezer and take them out one at a time for a treat. Really good with Cool Whip.

      -------

      This is a recipe I got from a friend of mine (who brought me some) and they are delicious! Warm them up to make them even tastier!
