Healthy Muffin Recipe with Cranberries

Ingredients (Makes 12 Muffins)
Time: 30 minutes

  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran


  • 1 cup nonfat milk (or vanilla soymilk)


  • 1 large banana, mashed


  • 1 egg


  • 1/4 cup honey (or 2/3 cup brown sugar)


  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour(see suggestions)


  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 3/4 cup of your favorite fruit (cranberries, blueberries, craisins, raisins, peaches, apricots, etc.)


  • Directions

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line or lightly spray muffin cups, including top of pan, with cooking spray.

    In a medium mixing bowl, mix together wheat bran and milk. Let stand for 10 minutes then whisk in banana, egg, honey, and vanilla.

    In a large bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add wet bran mixture to flour mixture. Using as few strokes as possible, mix until everything is moistened (lumps are okay). Fold in fruit. Spoon this healthy muffin batter into prepared muffin cups, 2/3 full.

    Bake for 18 - 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

    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.
