Raisin Oat Bran Muffins

These are pretty self-explanatory. (As Clay said: “What do you even have to write about? They’re muffins!”) They’re not cornbread, which I’m a little sick of making, and they seem to fulfill the Nutritional Ninja’s repeated requests for more carbohydrates. I wanted something that was, ahem, vaguely healthier – though let’s not kid ourselves: I couldn’t be less interested in making something with applesauce and no sugar. In fact, I didn’t have the called for buttermilk…so I used half-and-half. Come to think of it, these might well be the unhealthiest raisin oat bran muffins of all time. Maybe that’s why they’re so good.

Raisin Oat Bran Muffins

Adapted from this Gourmet recipe.

2 c. flour

3/4 c. oat bran

1/4 c. sugar

2 tsp. baking powder

3/4 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. salt

heaping 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 c. half-and-half

1/3 c. honey

1/2 stick butter, melted and cooled

2 large eggs

1 1/4 c. raisins

Preheat the oven to 375º. Grease, or fill with liners, a standard 12 cup muffin tin. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, oat bran, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, whisk the half-and-half, honey, melted butter, and eggs. Add the wet ingredients to the dry; stir in the raisins, and continue to stir until ingredients are just combined. Bake for about 18 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out almost completely clean.
