Oatmeal Bran Muffins (Amish Friendship Bread Starter)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by jenne

These are great low fat, healthy muffins that use Amish Friendship Bread Starter (yes, the gift that keeps on giving. . .I swear this stuff multiplies). Feel free to add nuts, raisins, cranberries, cinnamon, vanilla, etc. I make my starter with whole wheat flour, so I go ahead and use cake flour in this recipe to lighten it up a bit. I also use carrot baby food in place of the applesauce to healthify it a bit more :)

this was a last minute decision to make to use of some starter, I didn't have splenda and used brown sugar. I did use the whole wheat flour and it did make it dense but the kids still loved them. I did add the shredded carrots too .
Thanks for another way to use my starter
