DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In a large bowl combine oat bran, flour, chopped apricots, baking powder, brown sugar (save 2 tbs), and cinnamon.
  • Separately beat the egg with 2tbs of sugar until fluffy and light.
  • Warm up milk (just until lukewarm) and dissolve honey in it.
  • Mix milk, egg, oil and vanilla.
  • Blend together with dry ingredients, adding a bit more skim milk if the mixture seems too thick.
  • Line a muffin pan with paper baking cups.
  • Bake 18 to 20 minutes.
  • NOTE: It's almost foolproof, but you can test for doneness with a toothpick if you like: they should be moist but not wet.
  • To retain moisture, store in a plastic bag.
  • They're best served warm; reheating with the microwave works just fine.
