Zen Bakery - Fibercakes (bought at Trader Joe's)

I used to buy these Zen Bakery fibercakes at Trader Joe's in Los Angeles. I'm not sure if all TJ's carry them... or just in LA since the bakery is in LA... anyway the fibercakes (not the muffins, though those are good too) have 13g of fiber in them!! YES!!

If I could I would buy them everyday! But being in Germany I can't... so I'm gonna try to make them.

Anyone have any suggestions on ingredient quanitities??? Or ever made a different fibercake like muffin?

Here is a link to the nutrition label:

I'm actually surprised there is no flax in them, I actually had a dream about making these last night and in my dream I used flax.

I used to buy Zen Bakery's blueberry bran muffins (they sell them in Sacramento TJ's too), which had a ton of fiber as well, and here is a close recipe. 

1-1/2 c. wheat bran
1 c. soy milk
1/2 c. applesauce
1 egg sub. (sometimes I omit this)
2/3 c. brown sugar (I use Splenda)
1/2 t. vanilla
1 c. flour (I think I use w.w.)
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 c. blueberries (or whatever you have on hand)

Mix bran and soy milk.  Let stand 10 min.  Add the egg sub.  Mix all the dry ingredients (except berries) together.  Add to the wet mixture.  Fold the blueberries in.  Put in greased muffin cups and bake 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees.


Apstaats ; how many muffins does your version make?
