These delicious muffins are not dry like your usual bran muffin and make for a great breakfast! I like to make up the whole recipe and freeze them so that I can eat them over the next couple weeks. They reheat well if you thaw them in the microwave and then bake them for 5 minutes in the toaster oven. Try pairing it with yogurt or milk for some extra protein!


  • 1 1/2 cups wheat or oat bran (I used oat bran)
  • 1 cup milk (I used 1% reduced fat)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil (can substitute for another 1/4 cup applesauce for lower fat muffins but may result in different texture)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour
