 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Whole wheat flour
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 1/2 c Wheat bran
  • 1/3 c Brown sugar
  • 1/4 c Molasses
  • 2 lg Egg whites
  • 1 c Nonfat buttermilk or plain
  • -nonfat yogurt


Makes 6.

Total time: 45 minutes. Time to prepare: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 35
minutes. Do ahead: you can mix the batter the night before, then
refrigerate. Stir lightly before pouring into the tin.
Refrigeration/freezing. Refrigerate up to 1 week. Freeze up 6 months.

Moist, molasses-y, and deceptively rich, these muffins are "best" because
they're also fat free, but amply full of flavor, nourishment, and fiber

Heat the oven to 500 F.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking
powder, and salt. Stir in the bran with a whisk or a long-tined fork.

In another large mixing bowl, beat together the brown sugar, molasses, egg
whites, and buttermilk or yogurt.

Add the dry ingredients to liquid ingredients, and stir just to moisten,
about 30 seconds. Fill each cup in a 6-cup nonstick muffin tin
three-fourths full and place the till in the oven. Reduce the heat to 400
F. and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out
clean, about 35 minutes. Let the tin cool on a cooling rack for 10 minutes
before removing the muffins. To store, let the muffins cool completely on
the rack. Seal them inside a plastic bag, and refrigerate or freeze.
