I’ve always been a huge fan of its creamy texture—kind of like Cream of Wheat meets Oatmeal. If you don’t live near a TJ’s, never fear, you’ll find it at most markets next to the oats. It’s delish for breakfast—or even as a late night snack. And since it’s a Weight Watchers Power Food, it’s ZERO POINTS if you’re following the Simple Start or Simply Filling plans.   What is Oat Bran?  I was surprised to discover that Oatbran isn’t just the ‘husk’ of the oat, but is contained in the outer layer of the ‘groat’ which remains after the shelling process. (Confused? So was I!)   Click here for the full explanation from Mornflake >>   Here’s my version of the Oat Bran Recipe on the back of the Trader Joe’s container. They have a nuttier, denser texture than traditional blueberry muffins (a/k/a cake!). And they’re, of course, waaaaay better for you!   Click here for my Trader Joe’s Shopping List (with WW Power Foods & PointsPlus) >>   Blueberry Oat Bran Muffins 2014-05-26 17:23:04 Yields 12 3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus per muffin.
