I love breakfast and am often looking for healthy alternatives that are easy and quick. These little muffins are just the ticket. They are perfect to grab with a coffee and piece of fruit, or as an alternative to toast with your eggs. The small size mean you can have two if you like and not feel guilty. I found the recipe on a bag of Bob's Red Mill Wheat Bran, but subbed Dried Cranberries for raisins and skipped the nuts.
1 cup Wheat Bran
1 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup raisins (I subbed Trader Joe's Orange Flavored Cranberries)
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
3/4 cup Milk
1/2 cup Molasses or Honey
2 Tbsp Oil
1 Egg Beaten
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup chopped nuts
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan.
Stir together: bran, flour, baking soda and baking powder. Then stir in raisins and set aside.
Blend milk, molasses, oil and egg. Add to dry ingredients and stir JUST UNTIL MOISTENED.
Spoon into greased muffin tin and bake for 15 minutes, or until muffins pull away from sides of cups.
Makes 12 delicious little breakfast treats!
