Apple Bran Muffins

These healthy muffins make a great, energizing breakfast when you're on the go!


1 c. soymilk
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar

1 1/2 c. bran cereal (It can be any kind you want - I used a combination of All Bran and Raisin Bran)
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/2 c. oats
1/2 c. flaxseed meal
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp cloves
1 T cornstarch

1/2 apple sauce
1/8 c. brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 T oil

1/2 c. raisins
1 small apple, diced (peeling optional)
1/4 c. vegan chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 12-cup muffin tray.

Combine the soymilk, lemon juice, and vinegar in a medium mixing bowl and set aside for a few minutes to curdle.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Next, add the apple sauce, brown sugar, vanilla, and oil to the soymilk mixture.  Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix to combine.

Fold in the raisins, apple, and chocolate chips.  Spoon the mixture into the muffin tray, filling each cup to the top.

Bake for 18-20 minutes.  Enjoy!
