Reminded me of oatmeal with a crunch. Here's what I tweaked: 2c oat bran No oil. Used 1/2 c apple sauce instead. 2 egg whites (but I had planned to use a boiled mix of 1 Tbsp flax seed meal and 3 Tbsp water but the meal was MIA) 2 Frozen bananas (microwave defrost setting for 3 min) 1/2 c diced dried prunes. 1/2 c almond milk instead of cows milk. Baked for 25 min at 350 degrees in silicon muffin cups with a bit of cooking spray set on a sil pat rack (holes in it). I took other reviewers advice and put the prunes in the wet ingredients. Makes 12 muffins about 1/4" from the top of the cup. They don't rise much at all.
Pretty good after I changed the temp. Recipie says 425 for 18-25 minutes. It didn't sound right to me. My experience with baking is that pretty much everything ideally bakes at 350 but I followed the recipie. After 18 mins, muffins were way over done, hard as a rock. I tried again at 350 for 25 minutes and they came out great. Yummy if your taste buds are used to bland, no sugar recipes. If you're used to eating sugar, you may not like these.
These were great warmed up with a small amount of butter. I am trying to reduce sugar in my diet so I didn't add any extra sugar, and I find they are tasty, but definitely not very sweet. For half the recipe I used dried dates instead of raisins. The nutrition values on dates are almost identical to that of raisins in terms of sugars and fiber content. For the other half I used chopped pecans because I forgot to buy walnuts. I will definitely make these again.
Best healthiest muffins ever! If you had a sweet tooth you can add 1/4 cup brown sugar but they are great even without it. I like prunes a lot so I substituted the raisins once with the chopped prunes. Try that version you won't regret it. This is great, simple and healthy recipe! Both my hubby and 11 month old boy loved them.
I baked this into a loaf instead of muffins. I used wheat bran instead of oat bran, applesauce instead of oil, and ran out of fat-free soymilk so I had to mix it with water... super-skim milk! I also left out the raisins due to personal preference. The batter seemed really thick, so I added an additional 1/4c of water. I would probably add more cinnamon, or some Splenda maybe, if I made this again... I don't mind the "bran" taste, but it was very overpowering. (Again, this might not be the case if I'd actually have used oat bran.)
