Learn to bake these easy muffins that are a fantastic and healthy snack.

Bran Mini Muffins:


1 ⅔ cups (250 g) all-purpose flour
¾ cup (75 g) oat bran
¾ cup (50 g) wheat bran
1 Tbsp (9 g) baking powder
1 tsp (5 g) baking soda
½ tsp (1.5 g) ground cinnamon
¼ tsp (0.75 g) ground nutmeg
1 cup (250 mL) applesauce
½ cup (125 mL) maple syrup
¼ cup (60 mL) vegetable oil
2 large eggs
1 cup (150 g) raisins


1. Preheat the oven to 375 ºF (190 ºC). Line mini muffin tins with paper liners.

2. In a large mixing bowl, stir together the flour, oat bran, wheat bran, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the applesauce, maple syrup, oil and eggs. Add this to the flour mixture and stir until evenly blended. Stir in the raisins. Scoop or spoon the batter into the prepared mini muffin tins and bake for about 12-14 minutes, until a tester inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool the muffins in the tin for 10 minutes, then turn them out to cool completely.
