    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 190C. Grease a 12 cup muffin tray, or line with paper muffin liners.
    2. Combine the oat bran and wheat bran in a large bowl. Stir in sour cream and milk. Allow mixture to stand for 10 minutes. Combine flour, baking powder, bicarb soda, brown sugar and salt in a separate bowl. Gently stir blueberries into the flour mixture, carefully coating all the blueberries with flour.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
    4. Stir vegetable oil, orange juice and zest, egg and vanilla essence into the bran mixture. Combine flour mixture with the wet ingredients until just blended. Drop batter into lined muffin cups.

    Really good tasting muffin! I used WW flour instead of AP flour. The blueberries really made these muffins moist and for my taste I think it had too many blueberries as it went mushy. So, next time I will decrease the berries. The orange flavour was really nice and delicate, it didn't overpower the bran muffin. We really liked this muffin. Thx.  -  11 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I did not have sour cream so I substituted blueberry yogurt. Tasted great. I agree with the review that said to add less blueberries. 2/3 of a cup is great. Also when I used medium muffin liners I was able to get 12 muffins. You could exchange the fruit also. Ive made it with raspberries and cranberries as well.  -  09 Feb 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
