Healthy and festive for Fall, these Pumpkin Bran Muffins are a simple solution for breakfast for snack. My kids love ’em because they don’t taste healthy!
Pumpkin Bran Muffins are a thing. A delicious and nutritious, super simple, one-bowl kinda-thing.
Are you a muffin fan? I’m not sure I’ve ever met a muffin hater because my circle of friends all loves muffins. They’re essentially a healthy cake you can eat any time of the day and get away with it.Like the plain jane, comforting cousin of the cupcake. Who wouldn’t like that (besides the low-carb eaters who hate life anyways…)? Have I mentioned I’m a bit of a plain jane? I quite enjoy vanilla cupcakes, waffles without syrup and bran muffins. If they are made well, then there is no reason to not like them. Also, I’m a big carb eater. Ha!
This recipe is simple but still delicious! It is made by whisking all the dry ingredients in the bottom of a large bowl (flour, sugar, oat bran, leavening, etc..) then adding in the wet and stirring until just combined. Use an ice cream scoop to evenly divide into muffin tins and bake. (This is the scoop I have.) I made these last week for the second time in two days because I kept giving them away because of how addicting they were warm out of the oven. #carbloverproblems
Anyways, below are a few photos of the process that are pretty self explanatory but be sure to pin or print the recipe card down at the bottom of the page.
Have a great day, friends!
