delightful bran muffins

Since I do love my carbs, this is just what I want when I'm rushing out the door and need to grab something quick. This recipe is based on The Quick Recipe's version [wedn' gift from long time pal nicole]. Their version calls for buttermilk, butter, & a titch more sugar. Very yum, but not exactly how I want to start my day. This version substitutes with applesauce, soy milk, & earth balance [natural butter substitute].

1 1/2 C unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 C ground bran flakes cereal
2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 t ground allspice
1/2 t salt
2 large eggs
1/4 C packed brown sugar
3/4 C applesauce
1 C soy milk
6 T softened Earth Balance [smart balance or natural butter substitute]

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle position and preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.

Whisk together dry ingredients in medium bowl. Whisk together eggs, sugar, milk, & applesauce. Add melted butter and whisk vigorously until thick and homogeneous. Slowly ad dry ingredients to wet & stir until combined with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon. Do not over mix.

Use an ice cream scoop or a large spoon to drop batter into the greased muffin tin. Bake 18-22 minutes or until golden brown & inserted toothpick comes out with just a few moist crumbs. Cool muffins in tin for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack and cool for 10 more minutes. Serve warm.
