Whole Wheat Bran Breakfast Muffins

Submitted by: QUESOSAUCE

Introduction

I'm still working on perfecting this. I tried to combine the best qualities of several different bran muffin recipes. Play around with the amount of vanilla and spices. You can add any kind of fruits/veggies or nuts to adapt to your tastes. I love loading it up with carrots or zucchini, for the added fiber. I'm still working on perfecting this.

Ingredients

    1 cup of skim milk
    2 cups of bran buds
    1 cup of flour (I use King Arthur's wheat flour for the recipe)
    1/2 cup of Brown sugar
    1/2 teaspoon of salt
    2 teaspoons of baking powder
    1 teaspoon of baking soda
    2 tablespoons of cinnamon
    2 tablespoons of butter softened (you can choose a lower fat option, but I prefer a little REAL butter)
    1 egg
    1 cup of carrots
    1 tablespoon of vanilla

Directions

I can usually stretch the out to make 14 medium sized muffins.

1. Mix milk and bran buds in a small bowl. Set aside for later use.
2. Mix all your dry items in another large bowl: flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon. Stir until you have a nice batter.
3. In a third bowl, beat egg, cup of carrots, and softened butter. Fold this batter into your dry batter.
4. Fold in bran buds with milk. Mix until you have a moist, sticky batter.
5. Spoon batter into cupcake/muffin cups or muffin pan. I prefer the disposable aluminum cups, that don't require any pre-greasing. You can sprinkle a little granulated sugar on the top to get that "bakery shop" crispy top.
6. Place muffins in a 350 degree oven. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

  • Very tasty way to get a good amount of fiber! I was worried when I was making them that they didn't have enough moisture...but somehow when I mixed everything together it was fine! The batter is very thick, but the muffins came out nice and moist. I think next time I will try it with some banana! - 12/13/10
