directions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degree F.
  • Grease muffin tin (I like to use a silicone muffin pan) or line muffin tin with paper cups.
  • Whisk together flours, oat bran, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
  • Lightly beat the egg and egg whites. Stir in the buttermilk, applesauce, almond and vanilla extracts, brown sugar, and oil.
  • Stir the liquids into the dry ingredients, until almost combined (batter will be thick), being careful not to over-mix. Gently stir in the dried fruit and nuts.
  • Fill muffin cups about ¾ full. Bake until tester is clean, about 23 minutes.
  • After a few minutes, remove muffins from the pan, and cool on a rack. You can serve them room temperature, or re-warm them in a toaster oven.

    Great muffins! I doubled the cinnamon and used a mix of chopped dried apricot and apple for the fruit. The rest was "by the book" with the exception of the sugar, I replaced the ask for brown sugar with 1/2 the amount of Splenda Brown Sugar. They are really delicious warm from the oven with morning coffee. The recipe is simple to follow and quick to make. It's a keeper! Thanks for this one Maito.

    These are wonderful little gems! :) I used 2 eggs instead of the 1 egg and 3 whites as I didn't have enough eggs. I used 1-1/4 t. vanilla and no almond. We had raisins, but would love these with some apple bits. :) I also replaced the oat bran with wheat bran. Thanks, Maito!

    These are WONDERFUL HEALTHY muffins! I used the maximum amount of spices, Splenda brown sugar and Enova oil. I added pecan chips and a diced granny smith apple. The spice was subtle but was enough and went very well with the apples. The batter filled 15 foil muffin cups. My co-workers all LOVED these too. Made for the Please Review game.

    I made these today with some Medjool dates I got, and pecans. My only real complaint is that I made these in cupcake liners and the liners "steal" too much of the muffins. When I do it again, I will try greased muffin tin. I made it as written, using both vanilla and almond and it has a nice pleasing flavor. These show off the dates to good advantage.

    These are very tasty! I used spelt flour in place of wheat and quinoa flour in place of all purpose. The quinoa gave it a welcomed nutty unique flavor. I used 2 eggs total and a tablespoon and a half of vegetable oil. Didn't have almond extract but I'd be curious to try it with it next time. I mixed in raisins for some and chocolate chips for the other muffins. These muffins had texture due to the oat bran which I enjoyed. Next time I might try using flax to replace one of the eggs. I will definitely make these again. They are my new favorite (my husband's too) and fairly healthy.
