Ingredients A

  • 2/3 cup stone-ground whole wheat hp flour (unrefined)
  • 1/3 cup wheat bran (or oat bran)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons splenda is fine

Ingredients B

  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup light cream
  • 1/3 tsp vanilla (optional)
  • ½ tbsp canola oil (optional)

Pre-heat oven. Combine dry ingredients (A) in one bowl. Combine wet ingredients (B) in a different bowl. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix them together until just combined. Do not overmix. When you lift up the spoon, the mixture is like lump. Pour into muffin tray (large tray get 3 muffins). Bake for 20-25 mins, let cool off a bit, then serve.

Basic Muffin Recipe

  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • ½ Cup Granulated Splenda
  • 2 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup (8 ounces) Vanilla Low-Fat Yogurt or Soy Yogurt
  • ¼ Cup Low-Fat Milk, Rice Milk or Soymilk
  • 2 Tablespoons Canola Oil

Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda in a mixing bowl and stir together. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the remaining ingredients. Stir together until well blended, but don't over beat. The batter should be medium-thick. If it seems too stiff or dry, add a small amount of additional milk.

Stir in the additional ingredient or ingredients of your choice (see below), then divide the batter among 12 oiled or foil-lined muffin tins.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until the tops of the muffins are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center of one comes out clean. Let cool until just warm to touch, then transfer muffins to a plate. Store them in the refrigerator so they don't get moldy from the moist fruit.
