Pumpkin Pie Bran Muffins


Praise the gourd gods. Canned pumpkin is plentiful on grocery store shelves and after drooling over these tasty looking bran muffins last week, I was inspired to come up with a delicious pumpkin bran muffin of my own.

Bran muffins are the best kind of muffins in my book. Wheat bran is packed with all sorts of good nutrients like fiber and B Vitamins.

After scouring the internet for recipes, I determined that the key to a flavorful, moist bran muffin is pureed raisins and a bit of molasses, so naturally those went into the food processor along with the canned pumpkin.

Oh, and the 2 other key ingredients: pumpkin pie spice and orange zest! A little bit of sifting and a few stirs to combine the wet and dry ingredients and the batter was done.

SO GOOD, moist & sweet… and makes a totally legit breakfast with a large mug of piping hot coffee if you ask me.

P.S. With nearly 10 grams of fiber, 7 grams of protein and less than 275 calories, this is one healthy muffin… Calorie Count even gave it a Grade A. But I promise, you won’t even taste the healthiness when you’re scarfing one down.
