Apple Cider-Bran Muffins


Makes 12

  • 1 1/2 c whole bran cereal
  • 1 c apple cider or juice
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/4 c cooking oil
  • 1/4 c maple-flavored syrup
  • 1 c all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 medium apple, cored and finely chopped (1 cup)


In small bowl combine bran cereal and apple cider; let stand 3 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Stir in the egg, oil and maple-flavored syrup; set aside.

In a medium bowl stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center. Add the bran-apple cider mixture all at once, stirring just until moistened (batter will be thick). Fold in the chopped apple.

Grease muffin cups; fill 2/3 full. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes. Remove from pans; cool.

Pack 1 or 2 muffins together in small clear plastic bags or freezer bags. Store several days at room temperature or up to 4 months in the freezer (frozen muffins will thaw at room temperature in 4 - 6 hours).
