Ingredients Needed

  1. cup wheat bran
  2. cup plus
  3. 2 tablespoons (105 g) vanilla whey protein powder
  4. 2 tablespoons (13 g) vital wheat gluten
  5. teaspoon salt
  6. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  7. cup (6 g) Splenda
  8. teaspoon cinnamon
  9. cup (60 g) chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  10. 1 cup (240 ml) buttermilk
  11. 1 egg
  12. 3 tablespoons (45 ml) oil
  13. 1 tablespoon (15 ml) blackstrap molasses

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C, or gas mark 4).

In a mixing bowl, combine the wheat bran, protein powder, wheat gluten, salt, baking soda, Splenda, cinnamon, and nuts and stir until well combined.

In a measuring cup, stir together the buttermilk, egg, oil, and molasses.

Spray 10 cups of a muffin tin well with nonstick cooking spray.

Give the wet ingredients one last stir and pour them into the dry ingredients.

With a spoon, stir just long enough to moisten all the dry ingredients.

Do not over-mix! The batter should look rough, and a few lumps are fine.

Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups, dividing the mixture evenly (the muffin cups should be about 2/3 full).

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes and then turn the muffins out of the muffin cups onto a wire rack to cool.
