Cheese bran muffins with red pesto

These wonderful muffins are great at lunch and dinner. You can certainly have them with some pate and cheeses as a main dish, but you can always serve them as a side to fish or poultry.

To make 4 of these you need:
1 cup oat bran
1/2 cup wholewheat flour
1/4 cup rice flower
2 tbsp ground flax seeds
2 eggs
2 tbsp yogurt
pinch baking soda
pinch salt

3 oz Camembert cheese

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Coat a muffin pan with cooking spray (I prefer real butter or rice oil). Place half of the batter in 4 of the muffin bottoms and place a small piece of Camembert cheese on top. Cover with the rest of the batter. Bake for 20 minutes at 380 F. Serve warm with pesto sauce. I think that red pesto is a wonderful complement to the warm melting Camembert.
Here is how to make the pesto.

1/2 cup sundried tomatoes (presoaked in water or olive oil)
1/2 cup basil leaves, packed
1/2 cup black olives
1 clove garlic
1 pinch salt
1 tbsp olive oil (skip if the tomatoes are canned in oil)

Mix all in a food processor and enjoy with the muffins or with your morning omelet. Let me know how these worked for you, I personally love them.
