Can substitute applesauce or banana for the pumpkin. Also try adding chocolate chips in place of (or in addition to) the raisins. Also can add diced apples to mix

Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin Bran Muffins

1 c. wheat bran
1/2 c. multi-grain hot cereal or oats (unprepared; I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 c. uncooked millet
1 3/4 c. boiling water
2/3 c. whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 c. barley flour (or use more whole wheat)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tbs. turbinado sugar
1 tbs. honey
1 tbs. molasses
1/2 c. solid-pack pumpkin
1 egg, separated
1/4 c. buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
1/4 cup (or more) raisins

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin Bran Muffins

  1. Half an hour (or up to a few hours) before baking, combine bran, cereal, and millet with boiling water. Cover and set aside to soften.

  2. When ready to bake, combine flours, spices, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a mixing bowl.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the egg yolk, buttermilk, vanilla, pumpkin, molasses, and honey, and stir to combine.

  4. Add the bran mixture and the pumpkin mixture to the dry ingredients, and stir just until combined.

  5. In a small bowl, whisk the egg white until frothy, and then add and incorporate into the batter.

  6. Add raisins and pecans and stir just until incorporated.

  7. Divide batter between 12 muffin cups, and bake at 375 F for 18-20 minutes, or until firm to the touch.

  8. To freeze: allow muffins to cool completely, then wrap each muffin individually in plastic wrap or foil. Store in a sealed zip-top bag in the freezer.

  9. To defrost: remove muffins from the freezer and allow to sit at room temperature, still wrapped, for a few hours.
