Carol, these sound wonderful!

 

The only thing that I'm not sure is Core is the Fiber One Cereal, so if it's not Core, you'd only have to count the points for the Fiber One, if you're on the Core Plan.

 

Does anyone have any info on Fiber One? I'm not a big cold cereal eater, and the only cereal I'm really clear on is my beloved spoon-sized shredded wheat! I'll look it up right now!

 

Carol, thank you for the recipe!.....going to print it now!

Supposedly one of these changes/corrections was that Fiber One is Core, which I was surprised it wasn't listed that way to begin with. However, I've yet to hear about any changes at my meeting. This one does make sense, though.

From what I've been told the Fiber One is CORE because it has aspartame instead of sugar in the list of ingredients.

If WW considers bran cereal a potential "trigger" food I just can't see myself bingeing on a dry bran cereal! It would like eating sawdust!!!

 

A friend of mine substituted spoon sized shredded wheat with bran in place of the Fiber One. It made a smaller muffin but she says it works. Suggestion was to add about 1/8-1/4 cup more liquid.

PS....I made a batch of these yesterday using the shredded wheat with bran{crushed them a bit but not to make a 'flour}, stireed in 1 cup finely grated carrot & a peeled diced apple.They turned out great!!!

Hi Carol! :wave:

 

Do you think I could substitute All Bran for the Fibre One? I've got a open box to use up.

Thanks! Glad to know my favorite, shredded wheat can be subsituted.

 

I won't be using Fiber One now because I avoid products with aspartame. No wonder it's Core - no sugar! Good to know shredded wheat can be substituted.

You would have to use Kelloggs Extra Fiber All Bran Cereal (sugar free) as the regular All Bran has sugar.

Does the Extra Fiber have aspartame? :p

 

Does anyone have e-tools? I'd love to know if any of these bran cereals mentioned are Core. I didn't think so.

 

But, depending upon the points per muffin, with the bran cereal (possibly) not being Core, it seems like it could be a fraction of a point, if not "zero". :bcbsalute :)


May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

The All Bran with Extra Fiber has aspartame and high fructose corn syrup so I doubt it's truly Core, but with all the fiber it would be less than one point.

 

I ran the recipe through MC with the Fiber One and 1/12 of 2 cups of Fiber One is only 20 calories with 4g of fiber so you could count it as 0 points if you only ate one.
