Whole wheat flour, blan flakes and a lot of raisins make up these very healthy muffins.

Adapted from How to Cook Everything.


1 Cup whole wheat flour
1 Cup wheat bran
1/2 Teaspoon salt
4 Tablespoons butter, melted
1/4 Cup honey
3 Teaspoons baking powder
2 Eggs
1 Cup milk
2/3 Cup raisins (optional)


1) Mix all dry ingredients in a medium bowl.   Mix wet ingredients separately.

2) Stir wet ingredients into dry mixture.  Don’t overmix the batter.  It’ll be pretty wet but the bran will absorb a lot of moisture.

3) Quickly stir in raisins.  Again try not to overmix batter.

4) Pour into muffin tins that are either sprayed with non-stick spray, or rubbed with a light coating of butter.  You could also use cupcake/muffin tins.  You can fill these up almost to the top.  They won’t rise like cupcakes rise.  Sprinkle extra bran on top as a garnish.

5) Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  Try not to overcook them or they will dry out fast.

6) Cool on a rack for 5 minutes before eating.
