Apple Oat Bran Muffins

Oat bran binds cholesterol in the gut and blocks its absorption. Perfect for a healthy breakfast treat.
Recipe Ingredients
  • Canola oil for oiling the muffin pan
  • 2 large green cooking apples
  • 2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup unbleached white flour
  • 1 1/4 cups oat bran
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 12-ounce can apple juice concentrate
  • 1 cup water
Heat oven to 325 F. Lightly oil muffin pan. Peel and core apples; chop them coarsely. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, stir together pastry flour, white flour, oat bran, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Add apple juice concentrate, chopped apples, and enough water to make a light batter.
Mix just enough to moisten all ingredients. Divide batter among the muffin cups and bake till lightly browned, 25-30 minutes.
Remove muffins from cups while hot.
Serves 12.
