Bran Muffin Recipe

Bran muffins aren't your usual cupcake but they are a great alternative for breakfast on the go.  Children will eat them because they are similar to cupcakes, but little do they know that this bran muffin recipe is full of fiber, vitamins and minerals needed in a healthy diet.


1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup canola oil
1 large egg
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Bran Muffin Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Grease muffin cups with a spray oil or with butter.

In a mixing bowl, combine bran and buttermilk.  Set aside and let stand for 10 minutes.

In separate mixing bowl, beat the oil, egg, sugar, and vanilla together.  Add this to the bran and buttermilk.  Stir until well combined.

Stir together the all purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  Stir the flour mixture into the buttermilk and bran mixture until just blended.

Spoon the bran mixture into the muffin cups.

Bake for approximately 10-12 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
