Oatmeal Bran Muffins (Amish Friendship Bread Starter)

Oatmeal Bran Muffins (Amish Friendship Bread Starter) created by Gardenwife

These are great low fat, healthy muffins that use Amish Friendship Bread Starter (yes, the gift that keeps on giving. . .I swear this stuff multiplies). Feel free to add nuts, raisins, cranberries, cinnamon, vanilla, etc. I make my starter with whole wheat flour, so I go ahead and use cake flour in this recipe to lighten it up a bit. I also use carrot baby food in place of the applesauce to healthify it a bit more :)

    this was a last minute decision to make to use of some starter, I didn't have splenda and used brown sugar. I did use the whole wheat flour and it did make it dense but the kids still loved them. I did add the shredded carrots too .<br/>Thanks for another way to use my starter

    Nice job on this! I wanted to make something different than the super-sweet bread with my starter. My starter recipe had the perfect amount left after I divided it for me to make a double batch of these muffins. Mine is a little different, just because of what I had on hand. I used King Arthur Flour white whole wheat flour instead of cake flour. They still rose nicely. Also, I used brown sugar since I didn't have any Splenda. Lastly, I used half apple sauce and half grated carrots (packed). <b> Update 1/27/10: Made 'em again since my starter was ready. Used 100% white whole wheat flour and split the bran between oat and wheat, 50/50. Added 1/2 cup grated carrots in addition to the 1/2 cup applesauce. I then just added a little flour until the batter wasn't quite so runny.</b>
