Makes 12 servings

1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided
2-1/2 to 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
1 cup 100% bran cereal
1 cup fat-free (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
1 package (2 ounces) pecan chips

Preheat oven to 400F. 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 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.
