"These muffins are delicious. My very, very picky son loves them for breakfast and doesn't even realize they are full of good things for him. You can easily substitute the grains in the recipe for whatever you prefer or have on hand."

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. In a small bowl, cover the raisins with water, and set aside to plump. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, dry milk powder, wheat bran, and farina cereal until thoroughly combined.
  3. Drain water from the raisins. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until frothy, then mix in the drained raisins, applesauce, carrot, vegetable oil, and bran cereal. Pour the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture, and briefly mix just to moisten (do not overmix). Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full, and sprinkle each muffin with about 1/2 teaspoon of raw sugar.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the muffins are set and the tops are golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. A toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin should come out clean. Serve warm.


  • Cook's Note
  • Can easily freeze leftovers in a large resealable plastic bag. I pull one out and reheat for 30 seconds in the microwave for a quick and easy breakfast.

Lots of ingredients but really good.

These are really, really good! Dense & moist & just sweet enough with the 2/3c sugar (I used 1/2 splenda). Also used powdered egg whites (out of eggs!) and flax meal in place of wheat bran & bra...

Really tasty ... Made gluten free with bob’s red mill cup for cup all purpose flour. I tried them in paper cups and just in the tins and I found that the muffins baked without the paper liners r...

pretty good. It is really hearty--you can taste the whole grains, in my opinion, but I think that just adds to the flavor. I think I'd like a tad more carrot and raisins in this, so I'd increa...
