Healthy Muffins

These are not your average cardboard healthy muffins.  Really, they are delicious especially if you are not use to eating tons of sugar.  Only two tablespoons of oil and very little sugar.  A great treat in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea.

Best if eaten within three days

3/4 apple juice or orange juice (whatever you have on hand- I used mango peach juice)
3/4 cup raisins
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/4 cup chopped apples
2 tablespoons molasses or honey or even agave syrup
2 tablespoons oil (something mild in flavor like vegetable safflower....)
1 1/2 cups oat bran cereal (Fiber One, Aldi's brand, something with flakes)
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

*My neighbor adds a banana into it as well.  

Mix dry ingredients (except nuts, raisins and apples) in a small bowl or larger measuring cup.  Mix wet ingredients with a whisk.  Pour dry ingredients into wet. Stir until combined, do not over mix.  Fold in raisins, walnuts and chopped apple. Spoon into sprayed muffin tin (or you can use papers as well).  Bake at 350F for about twenty minutes.  Cool on wire rack for five minutes then remove from tin.
