In the Kitchen: Apple Bran Muffins

The Hubby and I have been on a health kick recently and part of that has been watching what we eat so when I found this recipe for a healthy breakfast muffin I thought I'd try it out.


1 1/2 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon baking powder, sifted
1 1/2 cups wheat bran
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large pink lady apple, grated
1 cup reduced-fat milk
1/2 cup apple sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 egg, lightly beaten


Preheat oven to 190°C/170°C fan-forced. Grease a 12-hole, 1/3 cup-capacity muffin pan.
Place flour, baking powder, bran, sugar, cinnamon and apple in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Make a well in centre.
Place milk, apple sauce, oil and egg in a jug. Whisk until just combined.
Pour milk mixture into well. Gently stir until just combined (don’t over-mix). Spoon mixture into prepared pan holes. Bake for 25 to 27 minutes or until browned and cooked through. Stand in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve.
