Bran Muffins

A plain old and easy bran muffin recipe, great for breakfast or a mid-afternoon snack.

Wheat bran is high in dietary fiber and so helps to keep the body’s elimination system in good working order.

Bran muffin ingredients

  • 1 cup flour
  • 3 t baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 T melted butter
  • 1 cup wheat bran

Sift together flour, baking powder and sugar. Beat the egg and add milk, butter and bran. Let stand for 10 minutes. Add the flour and stir just to dampen. Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake at 400 F for 25 minutes.

Vegan Bran Muffin Tweak

This recipe is easily made vegan by substituting 1 T flax + 3 T water for the egg (mix together and let sit for 5 minutes or so to thicken before adding to the recipe), 1 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk for the regular milk, and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil for the butter.
