These are another muffin I made while questing to find healthier muffins to send with my son to school. We all love pumpkin muffins in this house, our favorites ones being the Ultimate Pumpkin Muffins recipe that we have enjoyed for years now. Since there was no way I was going to screw around with what is a perfect recipe, I decided to take bran muffins in a different direction.

And once again, they are a heartier breakfast muffin, rather than a light, sweet treat muffin.

Ingredients Needed:

1/2 cup of oil
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of pumpkin
1/4 cup of water
2 tablespoons of molasses
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour
1/2 cup of bran
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1 cup of raisins

Kick the tires and light the fires to 350 degrees.

Take all the dry ingredients except the bran, and whisk together in a bowl.

In another bowl combine the oil, sugar, molasses, pumpkin and eggs.

Add the bran into the wet mixture, combine and then let sit for 5 minutes.

Add in your raisins (which can be plumped in the microwave by boiling them in water).

Add the dry ingredients and mix until they are just combined together, if you over-mix pumpkin, you get muffins that are rubbery and bounce. They might be fun, but they don't taste that good.

Fill the muffin tins about 3/4 of the way, then bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees until the tops bounce back when pushed gently.

  1. Yum! I have a great whole wheat recipe and use apple sauce instead of oil for a healthier alternative. Delicious! I’ll have to give your bran muffins a try! šŸ™‚
