Super Healthy Muffins Recipe


PREP: 0:10


YIELD: 10 muffins

1 cup wheat bran
1 cup  whole-wheat flour
½ cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. ground cinnamon
1 pinch Kosher salt
½ cup unsweetened applesauce
½ cup low-fat buttermilk
¼ cup olive oil
1 large egg

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 12-hole muffin pan with 10 paper liners (leave 2 holes empty).
2. In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients: wheat bran, flour, sugar, baking powder, soda, cinnamon, and salt.
3. In a large bowl, combine the wet ingredients: applesauce, buttermilk, oil, and egg.
4. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined.
5. Divide the batter among the lined muffin cups and bake until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 22 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
