Fruity Bran Muffins
Contributed by Diane S.
1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup oat bran
1/4 cup wheat bran
2 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1 whole egg (or 2 egg whites), beaten
2/3 cup skim milk or soymilk
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease muffin tins. Stir together the dry
ingredients and set aside. IN a bowl, combine the oil and honey. Whisk
in the egg or egg whites, milk, applesauce, and vanilla. Combine the
dry ingredients and wet ingredients until just blended. Gently fold the
bananas into the batter. Spoon the batter into the muffin fins. Bake
until the muffins just begin to brown, about 20 to 30 minutes. Serve
Variation: Substitute 1 cup blueberries, or 1 cup chopped cranberries
and 3 tbsp granulated sugar cane juice, for the bananas.
