Fruit-and-Bran Muffins

A few spices and a tart apple make these muffins a must-make this weekend. As a bonus, they serve up a good dose of fiber.

  • Yield: Makes 12 muffins (serving size: 1 muffin)


  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 2 cups O-shaped sweetened oat-and-wheat bran cereal
  • 1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
  • 1 1/4 cups uncooked oat bran hot cereal
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup egg substitute
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons applesauce
  • Vegetable cooking spray


Bring milk to a boil in a large saucepan; remove from heat, and stir in O-shaped cereal. Let stand 5 minutes or until cereal is softened.

Stir in apple and next 8 ingredients until blended.

Place paper baking cups in muffin pans, and lightly coat with cooking spray. Spoon batter evenly into cups.

Bake at 375° for 18 to 20 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Cracklin' Oat Bran Cereal for sweetened cereal and Hodgson Mill Oat Bran Hot Cereal for uncooked cereal in this recipe.
