Oven Ready Bran Muffins

Submitted by: SARA772779

Introduction

I got this receipe off the back of the Hodgson Mill Wheat Bran Box. My grocery store sells bulk Unprocessed Wheat bran for much cheaper, so check yours out and buy it fresh when you need it. I do the same with whole wheat flour.

Mix batter according to directions and store in refrigerator in an air tight container for 2 - 4 weeks so you can enjoy fresh baked muffins any time. These muffins can be customized to your tastes by adding dried fruit, nuts, seeds or chocolate just before baking.

These are just sweet enough and taste really delicious. Avoid overmixing and your muffins will turn out light and moist.

Ingredients

    3 cups Unprocessed Wheat Bran, also called Millers Bran
    1 cup of boiling water
    1/2 cup of Splenda Brown Sugar Blend (or one cup of Brown Sugar)

    2 tsp. baking soda
    1 tsp. salt

    Oh my, these are good with nothing added in them. The recipe I used to make made such heavy muffins that I was surprised at how light and tasty these were. Thanks! And these are so much cheaper to make than boxed muffins. - 4/22/09

  • do you really have to use butter in this recipe? Would something like I can'[t believe it's not butter work just as well? - 4/24/09

    I don't know. Try it and let me know how it turns out. I don't eat a lot of fat, so when I do cook with it, I use the real thing. If the muffins turn out light and airy like these do with butter, please share your results. I would be happy to reduce my trans fat by 2 grams.
