Awesome, healthy bran muffins with a kick of banana. Awesome, healthy bran muffins with a kick of banana.
Number of Servings: 18


    3 cups wheat bran
    2 cups buttermilk (skim milk with 2ish tbls lemon/lime juice)
    1/3 cup vegetable oil
    1/3 cup applesauce
    2 eggs
    1 cup brown sugar
    4 very ripe bananas
    2 cups whole wheat flour
    1/4 cup wheat germ
    2 tsp baking soda
    2 tsp baking powder
    Pinch Salt
    2 cups crushed bran flakes


1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Let the buttermilk and wheat bran sit together in a bowl for 10 minutes.
3. Add the oil, applesauce, eggs, then brown sugar. Then add the mashed up bananas (I like to mash 3 and cut the other one in chunks to add in at the end.)
4. Mix flour, wheat germ, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together seperately. Mix this dry mixture with the rest.
5. Stir in bran flakes.

Coat a regular sized muffin tin with cooking spray. I fill the regular sized muffin tins almost to top and they never really overflow. Bake for
15ish minutes.

**And the "18" count of muffins includes "testing" some of the batter :)

Number of Servings: 18

  • This is an EXCELLENT recipe!! I just made it this morning and they are a hit with my family! Instead of 3 cups wheat bran, I used 1.5 cups wheat bran and 1.5 cups oat bran. I also added 1 c golden raisins, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. (Add 29 calories). I'll be making these again! - 9/13/09
