Dukan Key Lime Vanilla Oat Bran Muffins

HE SAID: Good, I'll take two for work (even though he's not a muffin guy).
SHE SAID: Yum!  Needs more lime though.

Key Lime Oat Bran Muffins (they look just like the orange ones, we
should have put a piece of lime on it or something!
We loved Dukanitout.com's Orange Vanilla Oat Bran Muffins and we had a Yoplait Key Lime Pie Non-fat yogurt about to expire and we both love Key Lime Pie.  Mmm.  So, we decided to adjust Dukanitout's recipe to a Key Lime Pie recipe.  We didn't have key lime extract on hand (but have ordered some) so we used fresh squeezed lime juice...we still needed more lime.  You can definitely tell it's lime though.

We have a Yoplait Strawberry and White Chocolate Non-fat yogurt about to expire also, so perhaps we will bake some up with that.  A lot of flavors go well with vanilla.  We are also hoping to make some lavender muffins with the leftover lavender buds we have.  So many possibilities to make breakfast interesting!

We are posting a recipe that actually calls for the key lime extract, but if you prefer your muffins to have a subtle flavor and have limes on hand, use 3-4 t. fresh lime juice instead of the key lime extract.

Makes 6 muffins.
Prep time: 10 minutes or less
Bake Time: 15-18 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit

6 T. oat bran
2 T. wheat bran
1 t. baking powder
2 t. natural sweetener
1 heaping T. sugarfree vanilla pudding
5 T. non-fat Key Lime Pie yogurt from Yoplait
1/2 c. egg whites or 2 eggs
1 1/2 t. key lime extract or 3-4 t. fresh key lime juice

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.  Add the yogurt and eggs and whisk until smooth.  Add the extract.  Pour batter into muffin pan (we use baking cups for quicker clean up).  Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15-18 minutes or until cooked.
