Bran Muffins


1 1/2 cup Fiber One Cereal, Original Bran, High Fiber Cereal Made With Whole Grain
1/2 cup 2% milk
1/4 cup Reduced fat buttermilk
1 large Egg yolk(s)
1 Tbsp. Unsalted butter
1/2 cup Applesauce (unsweetened)
1/2 cup Z-Sweet / Stevia
2/3 cup Enriched all purpose white flour
2/3 cup Whole wheat flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
1/4 tsp. Baking soda
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground nutmeg
3 large Egg white(s)
1 cup, packed Raisins


Place the bran cereal, milk and buttermilk in a mixing bowl. Let the mixture stand for about 20 minutes until the bran is softened. Using a whisk mash the bran until it is well blended into the milk and forms a paste. There will be some larger pieces. This is OK.

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Cream together the egg yolk and canola oil until smooth. Add the applesauce and the Z-Sweet and whisk until smooth.

Sift the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmet into the mixing bowl.

Sprinkle the raisins over the top of the flour mixture and then fold the flour and raisin mixture together with the bran mixture.

Whisk the egg whites until white and frothy (they should about triple in volume). Fold the egg whites into the muffin mixture until they are just blended in.

Line a standard size muffin tin with 6 muffin papers and fill each muffin paper with an equal amount of batter. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes.

Recipe Notes

Frank Zappa was right! Muffins are great. These are a light bran muffin with a subtle sweetness. All that with over 1/4 of the fiber you need in a whole day.

"Some people... Some people like cupcakes exclusively, while myself, I say there is naught nor ought. There be nothing so exalted on the face of God's gray earth as that prince of foods... The muffin!"

Frank Zappa, Musical baker
