A simple, healthy bran muffin recipe that can be made a little differently each time. In my latest version, I added a combination of dried wild blueberries and dried cherries. Currants, raisins, fresh blueberries or raspberries.... whatever strikes your fancy!
You Will Need:
3 cups bran cereal
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tbsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup honey or agave
1/2 cup apple sauce (homemade is best!)
2 cups buttermilk
2 egg whites
1/2 cup dried or fresh fruits of choice
In a large bowl, combine bran and dried fruits. Now pour 1 cup boiling hot water over the cereal and set aside to fully absorb and soften the mixture.
In a smaller bowl, mix very well all of the dry ingredients: flour, cinnamon, salt and baking soda.
Now add dry ingredients to wet and mix thoroughly. Generously spoon the mixture into pre-greased muffin tins, sprinkle with a few oats and bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.
