These are absolutely the best bran muffins I've ever tasted. I made them last night, had two right then and had three this morning for breakfast. You should make them today.
Apple Raisin Bran Muffins (with Flax Seed)
Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time: 30-45 minutes
Servings: Makes 10 muffins
1 1/4 cup raisin bran
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 tablespoon milled flax seed
3 tablespoons water
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup margarine
2 apples, peeled and chopped
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Combine dry ingredients into large bowl.
Combine wet ingredients into smaller bowl.
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients.
Spoon into greased muffin tins up to the lip of the tin.
Bake 15-30 minutes, depending on altitude (the higher the altitude, the longer you'll need to cook them).
To keep the ultimate amount of moisture while storing, place the muffins into a ziplock bag immediately after removing them from the oven (while still piping hot).
Note: If you don't have flax seed, add another egg and don't add the 3 tablespoons of water.
Note: The brown sugar can be substituted with the same amount of maple syrup.
