Healthy Breakfast Bran Muffins

muffins2This is a muffin recipe I have developed and rewritten for about 30 years. Since I have sort of been a health nut I was aware long ago the importance of fiber in our diet and how much Americans are short of it.

This recipe has gone through many health phases and this is simply the latest.
It is my husbands favorite so I make a batch of these every 12 days at least. I bake them and put 6 in the cake stand and freeze the rest to be used when the first 6 are gone.

I have even developed a system where I make one batch and 3 other batches in plastic bags so that all I have to do is add the buttermilk, applesauce and egg. Mix it up and bake.

I am all for short cuts these days.

These are nice, moist and packed with fiber and protein.
In my opinion this is better than any fiber cereal on the market (hot or cold) and far more healthy.

Ingredients
  1. 2 cups bran
  2. ¾ cup flax meal
  3. ½ cup almond meal
  4. ¼ cup chia meal
  5. ¾ cup flour
  6. ¾ cup brown sugar
  7. 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  8. 1 tsp. clove
  9. 1 tsp. sea salt
  10. 1 tsp. baking powder
  11. ½ tsp. baking soda
  12. 1 cup dry cranberry
  13. 1 cup raisins
  14. 1 1/3 cup applesauce
  15. 1 cup buttermilk
  16. 2 eggs
Instructions
  1. 1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with cupcake papers.
  2. 2. Mix all ingredients except applesauce, buttermilk, and eggs together in a large bowl.
  3. 3. Add applesauce, buttermilk, and eggs. Mix well and use a ½ cup cookie scoop to scoop the batter into the muffin cups.
  4. 4. Bake for 3o minutes.
Notes
  1. DO NOT be tempted to leave out the Chia meal.
  2. It is high in protein and makes these muffins nice and moist.
  3. Chia meal or seeds are very nourishing and can be found at nuts.com or in some market and health food stores. I believe Winco now carries at least the seeds in their bulk section.
