I went to breakfast with some friends and had a wonderful apple bran muffin. It was so memorable that I went back to the café a couple days later and asked for an apple bran muffin To-Go. I really can’t keep popping in there and taking all their muffins, so I decided to give it a go at home. These satisfy the craving, loaded with apple and cinnamon spice!
1/4 cup butter
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and cut in small pieces
1½ cups All-Bran Cereal
1/2 cup boiling water
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup sugar
1¼ cups flour
1¼ tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 400°. Prepare 10-12 muffin cups with papers or spray with nonstick spray. I made 10 muffins, original recipe says it should make 12, you decide.
In small pan, melt butter and sauté apples for 5-10 minutes just until tender, remove from heat to cool. Combine cereal and water in large bowl; stir in buttermilk, egg, and sugar. Stir in apples with butter. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt; stir into apple mixture. Stir in nuts if desired. Scoop into prepared muffin cups. Bake 20 minutes or until muffins test done in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes, remove to cooling rack. Original recipe from tasteofhome.com.
