Apple Raisin Bran Muffins (with Flax Seed)

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


Ingredients

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
1 egg
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup margarine
2 apples, peeled and chopped


Preparation

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.

Becca, these sound delicious. We should have a baking party when I'm back in the fall.

I tried to make some devils food cupcakes the other night, and they were an epic ugly failure. I didn't even bother to frost them. I just threw them away.

Where do you find flax seed? I was in the grocery store looking for just that (or flax seed oil) and could not find it for the life of me!

Flax seed is in the flour area of the store. It's usually right by the whole wheat flour section...I guess they figure if you're healthy enough to use flax seed you're probably using whole wheat flour too. You have to buy the milled flax seed, but I don't think you can buy it any other way.
