I love bran muffins, but I’ve been trying to eliminate as many processed foods from our diet as possible and most recipes for bran muffins call for some kind of bran cereal. After searching on-line for different recipes, I borrowed a little from this recipe and a little from that recipe and I came up with a recipe of my own that I tried out last week and was really pleased with. The recipe came out great again today, so this is definitely a keeper.
SuperMom’s Recipe for Bran Muffins
1 ½ c wheat bran (<-affiliate link)
1 c sour milk (farm fresh that has soured naturally or add 1 tbsp of vinegar to regular milk and let sit for 10 minutes)
Mix together bran and milk. Let sit for 10 minutes.
1/3 c pear sauce (you could also use apple sauce, but I had a jar of homemade pear sauce open)
2/3 c brown sugar
½ tsp vanilla
Beat together pear sauce, egg, brown sugar and vanilla. Add to bran mixture.
1 c white wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 375 degree F until toothpick comes out clean.
Note: When I canned our pear sauce last summer I added some cinnamon so you may want to add 1/4 tsp to this recipe if you are using just plain apple sauce.
