Mixed Fruit and Nut Buttermilk Bran Muffins
Breakfast, Fall, Healthy, Muffins
packed brown sugar
I used pecans, measured after chopping
heaping 1/2 cup mixed dried fruit
very roughly chopped
Set oven to 350F
spray a 12 cup muffin pan, or fill with liners.
Whisk together the brans, buttermilk, oil, egg, sugar, and extract in a mixing bowl, making sure that the egg gets beaten as you whisk. Set aside for 10 minutes.
Fold the fruit and nuts into the mixture, then hold a sieve or mesh strainer over the bowl and sift in the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into the batter. Mix well.
Fill 11 or 12 muffin cups nice and full.
Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out without batter clinging to it. Don't over bake.
Cool slightly then remove the muffins from the tin and cool on a rack. They can be frozen after they've cooled, if you want, just wrap them individually, and well.
