MARCH: Bran Applesauce Muffins

I happen to love bran muffins and have many recipes. This is my current one using fresh homemade apple sauce.


1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup bran flakes ( I crumble these into the measuring cup )
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup apple sauce
2 large eggs
1/2 cup of liquid honey
1/2 cup of golden raisins

Since my apple sauce was sweetened this time, I only used 1/3 cup of honey.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Grease 12 large muffin cups.

Stir together the flours, bran flakes, baking powder and soda, and spices. Pour in the oil and apple sauce.

Beat together the eggs and the honey and add to the bowl. Stir together until just mixed.  Do not over mix. Fold in the raisins.

Using an ice cream scoop transfer to 12 muffin cups. Bake 20-25 minutes. Remove from the tray and cool.

I like them hot out of the oven. I freeze leftovers in bags of 2 and keep them in my freezer.
