Honey Bran Muffins

I wanted to prepare a healthy bran muffin to enjoy as a breakfast treat.  I tried this recipe which worked out well.  The recipe yields 12 muffins at approximately 156 calories per muffin.  I served the muffins with Polaner All Fruit with Fiber spread.  This spread has 35 calories per tablespoon and 6 grams of sugar per serving.

Honey Bran Muffin Recipe

1 cup Wheat Bran
1 and 1/2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 cup Raisins
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Baking Soda
1 cup Lowfat Milk
1/2 cup Honey
3/4 cups Natural Applesauce
1/4 cup Chopped Walnuts
2 TBS. oil
2 Eggs, beaten

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Line muffin tin with paper muffin liners.  Combine wheat bran, whole wheat flour, baking soda, and baking powder.  Stir the nuts and raisins into the flour mixture.  In a seperate bowl mix together milk, honey, oil and the eggs.  Add liquid mixture to the dry ingredients and stir until just moistened.

Spoon mixture into the muffin pan and bake from 15-20 minutes.  Enjoy!


  1. Great choice replacing sugars with honey. I do it very often. You could also try with agave syrup as sweetener. It works! Just don´t forget to add some more flour or bran, to balance wet and dry ingredients.

    1. Thanks, I will keep that in mind. I have never tried agave syrup in a recipe. It's just coming up with the right mixture of ingredients to get it right!
