Our healthier-version of this classic muffin is a reminder that home baked really is best. Swap in chopped walnuts for the raisins, if you like.*

Ingredients

whole wheat flour

1 cup(s)

uncooked wheat bran

0 cup(s)

sea salt

¼ tsp

baking soda

1 tsp

ground cinnamon

1 tsp

regular butter

¼ cup(s), softened

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, wheat bran, salt, baking soda and cinnamon; set aside.
  3. Using an electric mixer, in a large bowl, cream butter with sugar until sugar is dissolved; add egg and beat thoroughly. Add 1/3 of bran mixture and 1/3 cup of buttermilk; mix until just combined. Repeat, alternating, with remaining bran mixture and buttermilk; fold in raisins.

Notes

*Could affect SmartPoints Values. To prevent raisins from sticking to the knife when you chop them, coat the blade with cooking spray first.
