At my friend Erica’s request I am posting this muffin recipe. I eat one each morning for breakfast. They are filling and VERY healthy. Once I get started talking about these muffins, I think I actually freak people out. But, they immediately are hooked after their first bite.
Gathering the ingredients can be tricky. I highly suggest Whole Foods, but you will need a normal grocery store for the All-Bran cereal. And remember the oat bran is generally with the oatmeal. Also, I buy 5 bananas every time I go to the grocery store to ensure I always have ripe ones when I need to make a batch.
Tip: Sometimes mine only make about 18 muffins, so fill the extra holes with water so they cook evenly!
Mix in a Large Bowl:
¾ cup Wheat Bran
¾ cup Oat Bran
1 cup All-Bran
1 cup Whole grain flour
1 cup Flaxseed meal ground
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
Puree in Blender or Food Processor:
Either 2 whole oranges with peel OR 5 ripe bananas
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup canola oil
1 cup buttermilk
Mix well with a wooden spoon the dry and liquid mixture from above with (these are optional):
1 ½ cup raisins
1 cup Walnuts (which is what I do)
Spoon into muffin tins and bake for 20 minutes at 375. (fill the empty tins with water)
