These wholesome muffins aren't as sweet as most bran muffin recipes, but they have a warm flavor that everyone still enjoys. However, you can add ¼ cup of brown sugar or coconut sugar for a sweeter muffin.
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 muffins
  • 1 cup dairy-free milk beverage (unsweetened, original, or vanilla)
  • ¾ cup maple syrup
  • ⅓ cup oil (your favorite type for baking)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¾ cup wheat bran
  • ½ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1¼ cups + 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup dried cranberries, chopped (optional)
  1. Preheat your oven to 425° F and grease or line 12 muffin cups with cupcake liners. The picture above is a fancier presentation with parchment paper lined, muffin-sized, ramekins. But you don't have to get that fancy!
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the milk beverage, maple syrup, oil, and eggs. Add the wheat bran and oats, and stir to combine. Let this sit for 15 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Fold the dry ingredients and the cranberries (if using) into the soaking bran and oat mixture.
  5. Divide the batter between your muffin cups.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.
