Bran Muffins

My family was needing a little . . . ahem . . . help this week.  So we tried these from allrecipes (photo, too!).  They're not my favorite bran muffins, but they were still tasty and did the trick.

  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups bran cereal
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 apple, cored and shredded or finely chopped
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup honey

  • Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups, or line with paper cupcake liners.

  • Cover raisins with water in a microwave-safe bowl, and microwave on High for 1 minute to plump. Drain the raisins, and set aside.

  • Beat the egg with milk in a bowl, and mix in the bran cereal. Let the mixture stand until the cereal absorbs the liquid, about 5 minutes. Gently mix in the plumped raisins, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, melted butter, shredded apple, mashed banana, and honey, and stir a few times to mix.

  • Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, and bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
