This weekend we took a much needed Girls' Trip to sunny Palm Springs, California. While laying by the pool and sipping cocktails, we discussed our shared love of food. We all agreed bran muffins are insanely delicious and can be made really healthy, but I admitted that I couldn't even remember the last time I had a bran muffin. So of course the first thing me and Amy did when we got home (after emptying our suitcases) was find a recipe and bake some bran muffins...
These Apple Raisin Bran Muffins are based on a recipe by Amy's Healthy Baking blog. We chose this particular recipe because, not only did it look delicious, it called for all healthy ingredients! Bran is so good for you... it's low in sugar, calories, and fat, plus it's packed full of fiber. One serving (1/2 cup) of wheat All Bran cereal is a whole 10 grams - 40% of your daily value of fiber! Wheat bran is a concentrated source of fiber, which can help you maintain regularity and digestive balance.
Well, I had forgotten just how amazing bran muffins are! The apples, raisins, molasses and cinnamon give these muffins a great flavor, and the bran gives the muffins great texture. These Apple Raisin Bran Muffins are very moist, hearty and will keep you full and going strong all morning!
