CRAN BRAN MUFFINS


1 cup Bob's Red Mill bran
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg, well beaten
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons melted butter
1/2 cup Craisins, coarsely chopped
Preheat oven to 350°F.Soak Craisins (or raisins may be substituted) in warm water for 10 minutes.
Combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, mixing only until combined. Stir in Craisins and bran.
In a separate bowl, beat egg well; add milk and molasses. Combine both mixtures. Beat for 30 seconds, while adding the melted butter. Fill greased muffin pans 2/3 full or line with paper or foil baking cups.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out nearly clean, about 20-25 minutes.
Note: These muffins can be made in a food processor. Using a whisk, beat the egg separately, until light. Then stir into the remaining batter.
