Classic Bran Muffins

Nothing says 'I Love You' like heart healthy bran muffins. Whole wheat flour and wheat bran...yummm! My honey is out of town for Valentines Day, this was a special treat from him today! We have made these muffins twice in the last week. They are so yummy, with a hearty and sweet mouth watering taste!

Classic Bran Muffins
adapted from (Janet Kalman)

1 1/2 cups wheat bran
1 cup buttermilk (or substitute with lemon juice, fill 1 cup with 1 Tbsp lemon juice and fill the rest of the way with milk)
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup whole white wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
2. Mix together wheat bran and buttermilk; let stand for 10 minutes.
3. Beat together oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and add to buttermilk/bran mixture. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture, until just blended. Fold in raisins and spoon batter into prepared muffin tins.
4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool and enjoy!
