Healthy Bran Muffins

Healthy Bran Muffins created by PaulaG

After trying a couple of these muffins, I got the recipe from my friend Judy. It makes a large quantity but the mixture can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a month. That sure makes it easy to have fresh, warm, healthy muffins for brekkie or a snack! Timing doesn't include standing.

ingredients

directions

  • Combine brans & wheat germ in a mixing bowl; stir in water & set aside.
  • Cream sugars with margarine in a very large mixing bowl; beat in molasses & eggs.
  • Combine buttermilk with remaining ingredients & add to sugar/egg mixture; stir until well blended.
  • Cover the bowl & allow to stand in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  • Spoon into greased or lined muffin tins whenever you want a batch of fresh muffins - at this point, you can add fresh or frozen cranberries, blueberries, raspberries, pieces of banana or apple - use your imagination.
  • Bake in preheated 350F oven for 22 - 25 minutes.

    I'm cooking a breakfast for my 10 y.o. son's class on Friday, and I panicked just now when I almost didn't find this recipe. This recipe is that good. I keep plain batter in the fridge and decide which extras to add in each time I bake a few. I make banana nut, carrot cake, blueberry, cranberry walnut, date/raisin/nut....etc. Peach cobbler is going to be my new summer flavor. I kept a fresh bowl of batter on hand throughout most of this fall/winter, and my family frequently requested them for breakfast. I'm making them tonight with Greek honey in place of the molasses. I can't wait to taste them!

    Since it is just the 2 of us, I cut the recipe in half and got exactly 2 1/2 dozen wonderful muffins. I tossed in dried cranberries instead of the raisins and used Splenda for the white sugar. These are nice and moist, having the right touches of sweetness. I have put them in a freezer bag and will microwave them a few seconds in the mornings and have wonderful hot muffins. Thanks!
