Best Bran Muffins

I decided to make bran muffins the other day, and used a recipe I found using All Bran cereal soaked in buttermilk. I didn't have enough honey and I probably didn't take care to measure everything exactly, but the result was so bad, I had to throw them out. Of course, I then became obsessed with making a better bran muffin -- and read somewhere never to use the cereal, but to buy the real live bran....

Low and behold the best bran muffin recipe. I made them last night and they are wonderful. Next is banana bran...

1 1/4 c. flour
1 c. toasted wheat bran
1/4 c. sugar
1/2 t. cinnamon
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1 c. skim milk
1/4 c. molasses (or honey)
1/4 c. vegetable oil
2 egg whites
3/4 c. raisins

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Combine dry ingredients; mix well. Combine milk, molasses, oil and egg whites -- mix dry and wet together. Stir in raisins. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20-22 minutes

For Banana Bran Muffins -- omit raisins, reduce milk to 2/3 c. Substitute 2 medium mashed bananas.

Can't wait!
