I am in love with this banana bran muffin recipe. The addition of the yogurt to the batter yielded a deliciously moist and flavorful muffin, also in thanks to the mashed banana. I purchased Shiloh Farms Organic Unprocessed Bran and this recipe appeared on the back of the package. This recipe yields 12 muffins at approximately 218 calories per muffin.
Banana Bran Yogurt Muffins
1 cup boiling water
1 cup Coarse Bran

1 cup plain yogurt (I used plain greek yogurt)
1/2 cup raisins
2/3 cup mashed banana
In a small saucepan mix bran and boiling water Remove from heat and let mixture stand for 10 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the honey, oil and eggs in a large bowl. Add the whole wheat flour, baking soda and greek yogurt. Stir in the bran mixture, raisins, and banana. Do not overmix.
Spoon batter into paper lined muffin pan until about 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees between for about 25 minutes.
