breakfast muffins

I think I have made this recipe at least 100 times…I give them to friends, I make them for overnight guests to take on the road, and I keep them in the freezer for grab and go breakfast. The recipe comes from The New Lighthearted Cookbook by Anne Lindsay, an excellent resource for heart healthy cooking and just all round good food.

Here is my slightly adapted version of the recipe for

Oat Bran Banana-Raisin Muffins.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F/200 degrees C

In a bowl, combine 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk, 1/4 cup canola oil, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup mashed ripe bananas and 1 tsp vanilla.

In another bowl, mix together 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 cup oat or wheat bran, 2 Tbsp of ground flax seed and 1 tsp cinnamon.

Mix the dry and wet ingredients, just until combined.

Add 1 cup raisins (I like to substitute 1 cup frozen blueberries instead)

Spoon into 12 nonstick muffin tins. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
