Healthy High-Fibre Bran Muffins


  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar or coconut palm sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins or chocolate chips or crushed walnuts

*Note: We kept the raisins out and added some after we poured the batter into the muffin cups and lightly pushed them into the batter with a toothpick. Some muffins had raisins, others chocolate chips and some crushed walnuts. All were topped with either dry oatmeal or raw sugar granules.


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Line your muffin pan with muffin liners.
  3. In a medium size bowl mix together the milk and fresh lemon juice, mix well and let it sit for 5 minutes. Add in the wheat bran; let mixture sit for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. Beat together oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and add bran/milk mixture.
  5. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Add the dry mixture into the wet mixture, mix until just blended.
  6. Fold in raisins or wait until after they are in the muffin tins like we did.
  7. Spoon batter into prepared muffin tins.
  8. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  9. Let them cool on a wire rack and serve.
