Introduction

These muffins are wonderfully moist with a nice, subtle bite from the ginger. They taste really similar to Trader Joe's Carrot Ginger Bran Muffins. These muffins are wonderfully moist with a nice, subtle bite from the ginger. They taste really similar to Trader Joe's Carrot Ginger Bran Muffins.

Ingredients

    1 1/2 C wheat bran
    1 C buttermilk
    1/3 C applesauce (no sugar added)
    1 egg
    1 C all purpose flour
    1 t. baking soda
    1 t. baking powder
    1/2 t. salt
    1/2 C raisins
    1/3 C brown sugar, packed
    1/2 t. vanilla
    1/3 C finely grated carrot
    1 t. grated ginger root

Tips

I made my own applesauce by cooking down Pink Lady apples. Soaking the raisins plumps them. Organic carrots often have a sweeter flavor and are my choice for this recipe.


Directions

1. Soak raisins in 1 cup of hot water for 5 minutes; drain.
2. Mix together wheat bran and buttermilk. Let stand 10 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 375. Grease muffin cups or line with cupcake liners.
4. Beat together applesauce, egg, sugar and vanilla and add to buttermilk/bran mixture. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture, until just blended. Fold in raisins, carrots and ginger. Spoon into prepared muffin tins.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
