I forgot to add that I made it tonight and it is DELICIOUS Pat, even with that strange mix of flavours, specially when it has simmered and thickened... I can't wait to taste it tomorrow when the flavours have melded... YUMMY! Hubby really liked it too...

Funny, I must have subconciously thought about this recipe tonight, as I came home and - made chili! We're having soup dinners at church on Wed nights for advent. Perhaps I'll try this one when it's my turn. Thanks for review, Ilene!

Default Pumpkin-Bran-Protein Muffins

Okay, here’s a pumpkin-bran muffin recipe I modified to make it higher protein. It’s easy as (or easier than) pie and you don’t even need a mixer for this one. Hope you enjoy it!

INGREDIENTS

Nonstick Cooking Spray
2 cups Special K Protein Plus cereal
1 cup skim milk
¾ cup pumpkin
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 egg
¼ cup Splenda brown sugar substitute
1 ¼ cups whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3.5 scoops WHEY vanilla protein powder

PREPARATION

Mix together and let rest 5 minutes cereal and milk.
Add pumpkin, egg, pumpkin spice, and brown sugar.
Mix together flour, baking powder, and protein powder and add to the pumpkin / cereal mixture.
Spray 12 regular-sized muffin tins with nonstick spray.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool pan 5 minutes.

Aside from the fact that they have no actual food in them other than the peanut butter and egg whites, NOT BAD! The Brownies are waaay too sweet for me- I'd cut the spenda down to 2/3 of a cup.

Hey, on those yummy chicken breasts from Mrs. Jim that are "packaged & wrapped" in the foil in the broiler tray, has anyone tried those new Reynolds Wrap grilling bags that are for grilling? I'm wondering if you could put a bunch in those and get the same juicy result?
