These blueberry bran muffins have tons of blueberries and walnuts packed inside, so they’re tasty and good for you. These muffins are the famous and three time Emmy Award winning comedian, Louie Anderson’s favorite muffins (he really told me to say that)! In case you are wondering, he really is as nice in person as he seems to be on TV.
As you may know or have read, Joe and I, own Bonkerz Comedy Productions. We’ve worked with many famous and not so famous comedians over the years. We produced Louie Anderson’s Las Vegas residency for many years and become close personal friends. Louie loves bran muffins. I wanted to make him some that were healthy and didn’t have too much sugar in them, but still had lots of flavor. The blueberries and walnuts were the perfect addition!
Healthy and yummy muffins
These blueberry bran muffins have oat bran and whole wheat flour, increasing the fiber, but they are still delicious. Walnuts have omega 3 fatty acids and blueberries are full of antioxidants. They’re the perfect breakfast treat.
We always have big bags of nuts in our house. They are a great addition to baked items and ice cream sundaes (maybe not so healthy, lol), as well as just fun to snack on. Plus, blueberries are my favorite berry so I’m always looking for ways to add them to anything I bake.
These Blueberry Bran Muffins freeze well
This recipe makes 18 muffins. I like to wrap them individually in plastic wrap and store them in a ziplock bag in the freezer. It is easy to defrost these in the microwave for a quick snack.
Joe has lots of different muffins in the freezer. I always say its like a store in there. He gets to pick and choose which muffin he is in the mood for each day. Its also great when company stops by. We can pull something out and enjoy with a cup of coffee. When he gets low on a particular variety of muffin, I bake more!
