apple bran muffins

Trending on the blog: all vegan everything. because that's how it is now. :) These muffins are made with wheat bran  (not cereal flakes but little bran flakes), and like small-flake oatmeal, they aren't really visible once baked. Rather they make for a heartier, more wholesome texture and muffin. yay! inspired by breakfast things (and these blueberry ones), the apples and added whole grains make them worth biting into. cheers.

apple bran muffins

2 cups flour (1 cup whole-wheat, 1 cup white)
1 tbsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups soy milk (I used a soy-rice blend, as that was what I had on hand)
1 granny smith apple, peeled and chopped small
1/2 cup wheat bran

Preheat oven to 400 F and line muffin tin, or grease if you prefer to go paperless.

In a large bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. In a separate medium bowl beat together the apple sauce, sugar, oil, and milk. Stir the wet ingredients into flour mixture, and gently blend. Fold in apples and bran.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full with batter. Bake for 25minutes. leave muffins in pan for 5 min before removing. Cool on wire rack.

Yields 16 muffins.  I think they could have had an extra half of an apple, as I would've liked these a tad bit more apple-y. nevertheless I proceeded to eat one, two, ... three in a row.. enjoy!
