Bran Muffins

These are definitely a Marty special. I love them. They're super healthy, so I don't feel bad pounding them. I made them with quick oats and old fashioned, and I like both. I think the quick oats make them more moist though. Next time I make them, I don't think I would add as much sugar...


Mix dry ingredients:

1 1/2 cups sugar
3 cups whole wheat flour
3 1/2 cups oatmeal 
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 1/2 cups Crazins
1 1/2 cups nuts (optional)

Mix wet ingredients:

1 1/2 cups oil
3 mashed bananas
1 1/2 cups chopped apples (about one large apple)
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla.

Combine dry and wet ingredients together. Bake in a muffin tin at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen.

i have a new little rule: whatever is posted on here - those ingrediants go on my grocery list to make in the following week (desserts excluded...we don't need more desserts). these don't count as dessert.

i've made these before. they are pretty good ... mine were a little dry. but i'm not sure you can call them "bran muffins" if you aren't adding any bran. (jk mary). i think i like mom's original bran muffins best.

now, if only i could get my muffin tin back from kelli so i could make them...

i've made these several times and mine weren't dry. i love them.

Ha ha jamie. I didn't even think of that. I made these twice and they were less dry when I used quick oats.

ya ... i'm thinking i might try them with the quick oats next time i make them. i've thought about retrying them, but i think i wrote down the recipe and then threw it away when i was done (i always do that).

did i say i made these again??? i don't think i did. anyway, i got all the ingredients for it ... but forgot the quick oats. made them anyway. i don't think they were as dry this time. way yummy. i froze them and took out only how many i was eating. they lasted forever. i only have one left in the freezer...i need to make more.
