DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°.
  • Grease a large muffin tin (I use my "Texas" sized muffin pan).
  • In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, sugar, and cinnamon and mix to blend.
  • In another bowl add wheat bran and milk and blend well.
  • Then to the bran mixture add eggs, apple butter and 2 tbsp oil and mix to blend.
  • Let bran mixture sit 5-10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, peel, core and shred the apples.
  • Squeeze out any excess moisture from apples with your hands.
  • Add shredded apples to the bran mixture and mix well to blend.
  • Add wheat bran mixture to flour mixture and stir to blend (batter will be thick).
  • Spoon batter into muffin cups evenly.
  • Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until they just begin to brown and test done with a toothpick.
  • Cool muffins in pan on a wire rack 5-10 minutes.
  • Remove muffins from muffin pan and cool completely.
  • *** Preparation time includes preparing the apples. You can make 12 standard size muffins instead of six large but you'll need to reduce baking time to approximately 15-20 minutes or until they test done.
