Recipe Ingredients for Bran Muffins

1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1/3 cup boiling water
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons unsulphured molasses
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2/3 cup Oats, Rolled, Regular Old Fashioned
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon freshly grated orange zest
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 cup milk
1 tbsp white vinegar
1/2 cup ground flax seeds
100 g (Bulk Barn) Dark Toasted Wheat Germ

Recipe Directions for Bran Muffins

  1. Bran Muffins: Place the wheat bran in a bowl and stir in the boiling water. Set aside.

  2. In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat  the butter with the brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla and molasses and beat until well blended. Add the wheat bran and beat until combined.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, flax seed, wheat grem, oats, cinnamon, orange zest, salt, baking soda and powder.   

  4. In a small bowl combine the milk and buttermilk.

  5. Add the flour mixture in three additions, alternately with the wet ingredients, in two additions, to the bran mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Cover and place the batter in the refrigerator until well chilled (several hours or even for a day or two). 

  6. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) and place the rack in the center of the oven. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with paper liners or else spray with a nonstick vegetable spray.

  7. Fill the muffin cups, using two spoons or an ice cream scoop, about 3/4 full and bake about 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly before serving.

  8. Makes 18 - 20 standard-sized muffins.
