This recipe is courtesy of my 2nd mom, and CB’s actual mother. She is famous in the family for her healthy bran muffins and I love them so much that I decided to share them with all of you! They are packed full of great ingredients including oats, flax seeds and fiber! They are a healthy alternative for breakfast in the morning and they go great with your morning cup of coffee! (which both MP and myself cannot live without.) Enjoy!
What you’ll need:
½ cup brown sugar
1 ½ cups oat bran cereal
1 ½ cups unbleached white flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¼- ½ cup flax seeds
4 egg whites
1 cup unsweetened applesauce, chilled
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
½ cup- 1 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts work well. You can also omit this ingredient if you prefer)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper baking cups.
Mix together dry ingredients. Add eggs, applesauce and oil. Mix well until combined. Fold in nuts with a spatula. (Batter will be denser than your typical muffin batter)
Spoon batter into muffin cups and let stand about 10 minutes.
Bake about 15-17 minutes until golden.
(makes about 18 muffins)
Thanks for sharing your recipe, MP 🙂
