Moist Molasses Bran Muffins


I made these muffins a while ago with the intent to post about them, but life got in the way and I forgot until now. In my boredom one Saturday morning, while Jeremy was at work, I decided to make some muffins. I'm a big fan of muffins, especially oat/bran/healthy kind and these were delicious! The recipe is from the Bob's Red Mill website. Since I'm not a huge fan of raisins, I subbed craisins for them and the muffins turned out great! They are quick, easy, tasty and healthy.




Mixed and ready to pour.



Moist Molasses Bran Muffins


1 cup Wheat Bran
1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Raisins (Unsulfured)
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 cup Milk
1/2 cup Molasses (or Honey)
3/4 cup Applesauce
1/4 cup chopped Nuts
2 Tbsp. Oil
2 Eggs, beaten

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine wheat bran, flour, baking soda an baking powder. Stir in nuts and raisins. In a separate bowl, blend applesauce, milk, molasses, oil and egg. Add to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened. Spoon into greased muffin tin (or paper muffin cups) and bake for 15-20 minutes. Makes 12 marvelous muffins.
