Bran & Currant Muffins

Here I am with yet, another muffin! The cookbook I'm putting together should be just muffins I think! haha. I made these bad boys today & LOVED THEM! I have been wanting to make bran muffins for quite some time..and now that I did I shall be making them ALL THE TIME! Today has been quite the productive day. Laundry {check}, 4 loaves of bread made {check), clean bathroom {check}, read 1/4 of the Catching Fire book(the hunger games are HIGHLY addictive), delicious muffins baked {check} gardening {check}, dishes so much. haha I hate doing the dishes. Whenever I bake (which is often) I have to do the dishes like 3 or 4 times. uggggg who in the world likes devoting that much time to dishes. If one of you reading this happens to be that person who LOVES dishes, please feel free to come over anytime ;) haha. I will pay you!
Muffin time:

  • 3 tbsps oil (preferably olive oil)
  • 1 cup unprocessed wheat bran
  • 1/2 cup of skim milk
  • 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/2 cup of dried currants
  • 3 tbsps molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • a little bit of brown sugar to sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 400F. This recipe makes 9-12 muffins. I made 9, but you can make 12 small muffins.

Step one:
In a bowl or mixer combine the wheat bran, oil, milk, apple sauce, currants, molases, egg, & vanilla.

Step two:
In a separate small bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, salt & baking soda. 

Step three:
Add the small bowl of dry ingredients & mix. Do not over mix.
Step four:
Spoon the muffin batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle a bit of brown sugar and wheat bran on top of each muffin. It will make it look pretty! Bake at 400F for 20 minutes (or until fully baked).

ps: Ohhh I almost forgot to tell you all! I am going to Edmonton next week! I have never been out west & I am super stoked! I am going with my friend Victoria to my friend Katie's wedding! yayy!
