These Pear and Currant Bran Muffins are unique and delicious, not to mention healthy! This is a great bran muffin recipe to have in your recipe collection – a great addition as lunch or snack!
I realize sometimes my recipes aren’t totally seasonal. This one for example would be perfect for Autumn. But you know what? I don’t care. I have dried pears and currants and I’m gonna use them no matter what the season is! And they worked out so perfect in these muffins. Delightful, I tell you.
These are perfect for breakfast or a snack. I recommend eating them with Greek yogurt or with my chocolate PB protein pudding. You know you gotta have protein at every meal, right?
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk soured with 1 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup dried currants
1/3 cup chopped dried pears
Combine flaxmeal with water and let sit for ~10 minutes. Combine almond milk with lemon juice and let sit for ~10 minutes as well. Preheat oven to 400F. Mix the dry ingredients (the first 5 above) and set aside.
Mix well the sugar and applesauce. Add the flaxmeal mixture and mix well.
Mix in the cereal. Add in the dry mixture and the milk, alternating, blending well after each addition. Fold in the dried fruit.
Divide batter evenly in 11 sprayed (with cooking spray) paper-lined muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes.
