Margy's Multigrain Muffins

I'm not a big breakfast person (unless we go out), and that isn't healthy (either way).  Now I'm trying to do better, and have at least a muffin each morning.  I researched bran muffins online, and come up with my own multigrain version.


Margy's Multigrain Muffins

2 eggs
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons molasses
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 orange zested and juiced

Lightly beat eggs.  Add brown sugar and blend.  Add milk, oil, molasses, vanilla, orange juice and zest.

1/2 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup oat bran
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup ground flax
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients and blend into wet ingredients.

1 apple with skin, grated
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Stir in grated apple, soaked cranberries, and chopped pecans to the muffin mix.

Coat muffin pans with cooking spray. Fill 3/4 full for expansion.  Bake f20 minutes at 350 degrees, or until lightly brown.  Remove from pans while still warm with knife. Makes 21 medium muffins.  Freeze extras.  Warm in a toaster oven for an easy breakfast.

Yum! The recipe is certainly on the healthy side. I usually eat a bowl of Kamut Flakes topped with ground flax seeds and fruit on top, what ever is available and in season with coconut dream poured over. I rarely have eggs or blueberry buckwheat pancakes.

YOur muffin recipe sounds delicious, must copy it down and give it a try. Much healthier than chocolate chip muffins which I usually end up making.
My favourite breakfast food is either Weetabix, Shredded Wheat, or oatmeal.
