Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup bran cereal (flakes or another shape)
  • 1/4 cup unprocessed bran
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit such as raisins, cherries, or cranberries
  • Cooking-oil spray

Preparation

  1. 1. Mix together both brans with 1/4 cup boiling water in a large bowl. Let cool. In a small bowl, combine oil, honey, molasses, milk, and egg, then stir into bran mixture. Add flour, baking soda, salt, spices, and dried fruit and stir until just combined.
  2. 2. Spray a microwave-safe 1/2-cup bowl or ramekin with cooking spray and spoon in 1/4 cup batter. Microwave until muffin springs back when touched but isn't hard, about 45 seconds for a single muffin or 90 seconds for 4 muffins cooked together. Repeat with remaining batter.
  3. Make ahead: For batter, up to 4 days, chilled.
