Bran Muffins Revised

Bran Muffins Revised

 

So I really like bran muffins and I totally forgot that I did 😜
So when my sister-in-law sent some over and they were quickly eaten up, I decided to try to make a healthier version of the recipe we generally use.
They turned out nicely but they were not overly sweet by any means, which we personally, were ok with.
If you choose to add in the raisins, that would up the sweet factor, I just can’t withstand raisins in any kind of baking so I left them out 😬

I love having a muffin warmed up with a little smidgen of butter and a slice or two of marble cheese πŸ€€πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

 

 

Ingredients:

4 cups Bran Flakes cereal
2 cups All Bran cereal
2 cups boiling water

1/4 cup butter or margarine
3/4 cup applesauce
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons maple syrup
4 eggs
4 cups buttermilk

4 cups whole wheat flour
2 tablespoons baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
dash of salt

 

2 cups raisins – optional
1 cup slivered or chopped almonds

 

 

Directions:

In a large bowl combine the cereals and boiling water, set aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream together the butter, applesauce and sweeteners.
Beat in eggs one at a time and then add in the buttermilk, mixing well before pouring into the cereal mixture and stirring the two together.

In another bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt – and nuts and raisins if you choose to add those.

Add to batter, stir to combine.

You can store the batter in the refrigerator for up to six weeks.

As the desire for a fresh bran hits, you can bake off a few at a time so they are always fresh 😁

Heat the oven to 400 F and fill a lined muffin tin 3/4 full.
Bake for 18-20 minutes.

 

 

Remove from the pan to cool and then hopefully, enjoy!πŸ’•πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
