Blueberry Bran Muffins

Ahhh, so the wonderful smell of baking bread surrounds me as I tell you about the muffins I baked first this morning! Chocolate Chip Blueberry Bran muffins. The recipe came from the back of the milk bag a few years ago. They didn't include the chocolate chips, but I added them anyway. They are simply delicious!
The recipe made about 2 1/2 dozen muffins, so you might want to bake half a batch if you only want a dozen. These muffins have some sources of fiber and milk and with or without the chocolate chips, they taste great!

Blueberry Bran Muffins
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Mix together and let stand:
     1 cup bran
     1 cup boiling water

Combine in a large bowl and make a well in the center:
     2 1/2 cups flour
     2 cups oats
     1 1/2 cups sugar
     2 1/2 tsp. baking soda
     1 tsp. salt
     3/4 cups chocolate chips

Whisk together in a small bowl:
     1/2 cup melted butter
     2 eggs
     2 cups milk
Combine the bran mixture, the milk mixture and 2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries into the dry ingredients. Stir just until combined. The mixture will be quite soupy. Fill greased or lined muffin tins 3/4 full. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the tops spring back when pressed lightly.

When you steal the first muffin, be careful not to burn yourself on the scorching hot blueberries and chocolate chips as you take the first bite! You won't be able to resist!
