Low-Fat, Low-Calorie, High-Fiber, High-Protein Apple Cinnamon Bran Muffins

Submitted by: CURVES_N_CURLS

Introduction

A variation on a theme... Very similar to my "Low-Fat, Low-Calorie, High-Fiber, High-Protein Blueberry Bran Muffins" - just with a couple of ingredient changes. Look for more variations to come! :) [Created 2008-12-31.] A variation on a theme...

Ingredients

    * 1 1/2 cups Natural Wheat bran, crude
    * 1 cup Milk, 1%
    * 1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
    * 1 Egg, large
    * 1/2 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed
    * 1/4 cup Honey
    * 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
    * 1/2 cup Flour, white (all-purpose)
    * 3/4 cup Flour, whole wheat
    * 3/4 cup (100g) 35% Whey Protein Concentrate powder, plain / natural / unflavoured (sometimes known as "WPC 35")
    * 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
    * 1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
    * 1/2 tsp. Salt
    * 2 tsp Cinnamon, ground
    * 4 tbsp. Wheat Germ, untoasted
    * 2 1/2 cups Apple, diced with skin left on (2 medium-sized apples, +/-)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease muffin cups or use paper muffin liners.
2. In a small bowl, mix together wheat bran and milk, and let stand for 10 minutes.
3. In another small bowl, mix together the diced apple pieces and wheat germ, tossing to coat the berries.
4. In a large bowl, mix together applesauce, egg, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. Beat in bran mixture.
5. Sift together flours, whey protein, baking soda and powder, salt, and cinnamon. Stir into bran mixture until just blended.
6. Fold in wheat germ-covered berries, and scoop into muffin cups. Makes 9 large 'jumbo' muffins, or 18 smaller 'regular' sized muffins. [Can also make 4 'jumbo' and 10 'regular' or some other combination, depending on your pans!] (Use about 1/2 cup batter for large 'jumbo' muffins, or about 1/4 cup batter for smaller 'regular' sized muffins.)
7. Bake in preheated oven for 15 (regular sized muffins) to 20 (jumbo sized muffins) minutes, or until tops spring back when lightly tapped. Remove from oven, and cool on wire racks.
8. Makes 9 large 'jumbo' muffins [2 'servings' each], or 18 smaller 'regular' muffins [1 'serving' each]. Enjoy! :)
***NOTE: Due to the natural bran oils and lack of preservatives, these muffins can go bad (rancid) quickly. Store in the frige or freezer, or eat within a day or two for best results.
