This week I’m suggesting a sweet treat with this recipe for raisin and bran muffins...


2 spray(s) cooking spray   

1 cup(s) whole wheat flour   

2/3 cup(s) uncooked wheat bran   

 1/4 tsp sea salt   

1 tsp baking soda   

 1 tsp ground cinnamon   

1/4 cup(s) regular butter, softened   

2/3 cup(s) unpacked light brown sugar

1 large egg(s)   

1 cup(s) raisins, chopped   


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, wheat bran, salt, baking soda and cinnamon; set aside.

Using an electric mixer, in a large bowl, cream butter with sugar until sugar is dissolved; add egg and beat thoroughly. Add one-third of bran mixture and one-third cup of buttermilk; mix until just combined.

Repeat, alternating, with remaining bran mixture; fold in raisins.

Fill each prepared muffin hole about two-thirds full with batter; place in middle of oven. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean – about 15 to 20 minutes.

Serve warm or cooled. Yields one muffin per serving.
