Orange-Cranberry Bran Muffins

Orange-Cranberry Bran Muffins created by M in MN

This is a recipe from the G.I. Diet book. They are loaded with fibre but taste really nice. Not a light cake like muffin. The cranberries give these muffins a nice little burst of tartness. I didn't have any fresh cranberries so I used dried.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F Line or grease 12 muffin cups and set aside.
  • Combine the bran cereal and wheat bran in a large bowl. Stir in the boiling water to moisten and set aside for 5 minutes. Mix in the buttermilk, egg, oil, sugar substitute, orange juice concentrate, orange zest and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, flaxseed, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger, and salt. Stir in the cranberries. Stir into the bran mixture until just moistened.
  • Divide the batter among the muffin cups and bake for about 25 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cook in the pan for about 5 minutes, then remove to cook slightly before serving.
  • Storage: The muffins can be stored, covered, at room temperature for up to 2 days or frozen for up to 1 month. To freeze, wrap each muffin individually, then place them in a resealable plastic bag or airtight container.

    Made as directed and they were good. The NEXT time, I changed a few things and they were better: The ginger overpowered the orange, so I cut it to 1/8 t.; increased orange zest to 1 &1/2 Tb.; and used heated OJ concentrate to replace the hot hot water. The directions did not say so, but I cut each cranberries in half. The sugar substitute I used was 1/8 c. splenda and 1/8c Stevita (stevia). Moist, dense muffins. Made 16 of them.
