Banana Bran Muffins

Looking for something healthy to start your day? I have been cooking things from my copy of Anne Lindsay's "The New Lighthearted Cookbook" and these were a tasty treat. I don't like my muffins to be all sweet and cake-like, nor do I like raisins. With this recipe the banana makes them sweet enough, and if you want you can choose to add raisins. I left them out.

1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup oat or wheat bran
1 cup raisins (optional)

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and wheat bran. Stir with a whisk. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg, milk, canola oil, sugar, bananas and vanilla. Mix until well combined. Pour into the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until just moistened. Fold in raisins, if using.

Line a muffin tin with paper cups and fill each about 2/3 full. Bake at 400 F for 20-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Makes 12.
