A delicious source of fiber! My family has them almost every morning. Great healthy muffins! You may substitute dates for the raisins if you wish.
This low-fat morning treats only taste indulgent; all six muffins contain just one egg, and a quarter cup each of dark-brown sugar and oil keeps them surprisingly moist. Raisin-bran cereal soaked in milk lends hearty texture.
These were delicious. I changed the recipe to make them a little healthier like others suggested. I substituted the oil with 1/3 applesauce.
I also couldn’t find wheat bran, so I first made a batch with a store brand of Fiber One (the ones that look like twigs). I made another batch with All Bran bran buds. Both came out delicious.
I had better results just spraying the muffin tins with Pam. When I used paper liners the first time, they didn’t come off easily because of the low-fat content. I’ve added dried cranberries, chopped walnuts, chopped dates, and about 1 tsp cinnamon.
I gave some away to friends and they said they really enjoyed them (their kids too!) I’ll make these frequently since they’re a great snack…lots of fiber too.
