Oat Bran Muffins

I find all kinds of delicious recipes on Allrecipes. This muffin recipe is hearty and goes well with butter or jam. I made some changes that I’ve noted below.


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar (I used light brown sugar)
  • 1 1/2 cups oat bran
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup chilled applesauce
  • 4 T vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (I added this ingredient)
  • 2 T sliced almonds (to give it some crunch)
  • 1 T flaxseed (more crunch!)
  • Cinnamon sugar (for topping)


  1. Preheat oven to 400F and line muffin baking pan with muffin cups.
  2. In a blender, combine the brown sugar, oat bran, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the eggs one at a time, beating until incorporated. Add the applesauce and vegetable oil. Mix well and spoon batter into muffin cups (filling them 2/3 of the way).
  3. Sprinkle the tops with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake at 400F for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
