Banana All-Bran Muffins

Pat Duran


This a simple yet healthy bran muffin with bananas, molasses, nuts, chopped dates or raisins.
I should have filled the cups a little fuller-but didn't know if they would overflow- will know better next time- live and learn!

How to Make Banana All-Bran Muffins


  1. Preheat oven to 400^. Spray twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin-pan cups or lined with foil bake cups.Or use 18 regular size muffin cups.
  2. In a medium bowl stir together flour,sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
    Combine the all-bran and shaken buttermilk and let stand at least 5 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl add egg and oil. Beat well with a whisk. Whisk in zest, molasses, vanilla, and orange flavoring,if using. Mixture will look curdled. That's OK.
  4. Fold in bran mixture with a wooden spoon and combine.Slowly add the flour mixture to the batter just until combined. Don't over mix it!
    Fold in remaining ingredients, stirring until just combined.
    Portion batter evenly into muffing cups using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, fill muffin cups full and bake about 20-28 minutes, until a wooden toothpick comes out clean inserted in the center.
