Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray/grease your muffin pan.
  3. Mix together the wheat bran, brown sugar, and buttermilk.
  4. Whisk together the whole wheat flour, baking soda, and baking powder in a seperate bowl.
  5. Whisk together the egg, oil, applesauce, honey, and molasses in a seperate bowl.
  6. Add the whole wheat flour to the soaked bran (it should have been given at least 5-15 minutes.).
  7. Add the oil-honey-molasses egg to the main bowl.
  8. Mix all together until thoroughly combined but lumpy.
  9. Divide and bake for 20 minutes or until risen and browned.
  10. VARATIONS: Always good to include are raisins, plumped or not, bananas, chopped, or apples. These should be about 1-1.5 cups each, and with bananas, one should reduce the liquid by 1/2-1/4 of a cup, the same with plumped raisins. Cinnamon and nutmeg also help.
