WW muffins

Got this recipe from Pat!

Weight Watcher Muffins
(2 points each)
Mix together:
1 & 1/4 cup skim milk
1 & 1/4 cup wheat bran
1/2 cup regular brown sugar
(do not use substitute)
Mix first three ingredients and set aside for 15 minutes
1 & 1/2 cup wheat flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 tablespoon baking powder
mix well then add:
8 oz. crushed pineapple in its own juice (do not drain)
2 egg whites
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Mix well, fill muffin tins to the top (this does not rise much) . Bake at 350 degrees for 16-20 minutes. 12 muffins 
equal 2 points (old point conversion) each. One recipe should yield a dozen muffins if you don't use jumbo muffin pans!

*I leave out the cranberries,  raisins, and slightly increase the raisins. I also add about 1/2 cut shredded carrot, to increase the fiber, but not the calories.
Making and then freezing these makes a great quick breakfast or snack. They do not keep well for long unless frozen because of the moisture content.
