    1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided
    2 1/2 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
    1 cup 100% bran cereal
    1 cup milk (can use skim milk)
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup canned pumpkin
    1 egg, beaten
    1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    1 (2 ounce) package pecan chips

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

    Coat nonstick 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/2 to 1 teaspoon cinnamon in small bowl for topping; set aside.

    Blend cereal and milk in large bowl; set aside 5 minutes to soften.

    Meanwhile, combine flour, remaining sugar and cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl; mix well.

    Whisk pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract into softened cereal. Gently fold in flour mixture just until blended. DO NOT OVER-MIX! Spoon equal amounts of batter into each muffin cup; sprinkle evenly with pecan chips. Sprinkle with reserved cinnamon-sugar topping.

    Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Cool on wire rack 3 minutes before removing muffins from pan.

    Serve warm or at room temperature.

    Makes 12 servings.
