1/2 Photos of Handyman Bran Muffins
Adaptable, healthy, and hearty whole wheat and bran muffins with a little tang from the buttermilk, a little twist from some molasses, and a little sweet from the honey. These are great for snacking or toasted to absorb some black-as-sin coffee.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 1/2 cups wheat bran
- 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 2 1/2 cups buttermilk, I use non-fat
- 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 dash salt
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/4 cup applesauce or 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1 eggs or 2 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons molasses or 1/8 cup molasses
- 2 tablespoons honey or 1/8 cup honey
- 1Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- 2Spray/grease your muffin pan.
- 3Mix together the wheat bran, brown sugar, and buttermilk.
- 4Whisk together the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a seperate bowl.
- 5Whisk together the egg, oil, applesauce, honey, and molasses in a seperate bowl.
- 6Add the whole wheat flour to the soaked bran (it should have been given at least 5-15 minutes.).
- 7Add the oil-honey-molasses egg to the main bowl.
- 8Mix all together until thoroughly combined but lumpy.
- 9Divide and bake for 20 minutes or until risen and browned.
- 10VARATIONS: Always good to include are raisins, plumped or not, bananas, chopped, or apples. These should be about 1-1.5 cups each, and with bananas, one should reduce the liquid by 1/2-1/4 of a cup, the same with plumped raisins. Cinnamon and nutmeg also help.
