High Fiber Healthy Bran Muffin Recipe

Ingredients (Makes 12 Muffins)
Time: 40 minutes

  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran (or oat bran)

  • 1 cup fat free vanilla yogurt (or plain)

  • 1/3 cup applesauce

  • 2 egg whites

  • 4 tablespoons white splenda

  • 4 tablespoons brown splenda

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour (see substitutes)

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup cranberries (raisins, etc.)

  • 4 tablespoons ground flaxseed

  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray muffin tins, including the top of the pan, with cooking spray.

    In a medium mixing bowl, beat together the wheat bran, yogurt, applesauce, egg whites, splendas, and vanilla. Let stand 10 minutes.

    In a separate mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix the wet bran mixture into this flour mixture just until everything is moist. Use as few strokes as possible (lumps are okay). Fold in cranberries and spoon batter into prepared muffin tins, each 2/3 full.

    Bake for 18 - 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and sprinkle bran muffin tops with ground flaxseed. Serve warm!

    Substitute bananas for the applesauce and add some nuts to turn this into a sugar free banana nut muffin with whole wheat bran.

    There are many types of whole wheat flours that are sweeter and lighter than traditional whole wheat. For example, hard white wheat flour creates similar results as all white but is much better for you. There are other choices, too, like kamut flour, spelt flour, oat flour, and teff flour. These are all healthy choices. So ENJOY!
