If youre looking for those jumbo sized sugar-laden mini-cakes they sell at your local donut shop, this might not be the recipe for you. The thing is, I dont have a major sweet tooth. Fortunately, this comes in handy when creating healthy baked good recipes because I actually prefer the subtle, natural sweetness that comes from ingredients like honey or natural applesauce. Is this going to be the sweetest muffin of your life? Probably not. But I promise it is moist and full of flavor. Do you have wheat bran in your house? You should! It stores well and is loaded in health benefits . This unprocessed whole grain is an excellent source of dietary fiber that reduces your risk of typeII diabetes and reduces inflammation.

The Recipe For Delicious And Healthy Sugar Free Bran Muffins

The Recipe For Delicious And Healthy Sugar Free Bran Muffins

Every now and then, it really is okay to enjoy some Healthy Sugar Free Bran Muffins. Despite the fact that these may be rather tasty to eat, they may also be one of the more forgotten muffins out there. It may be true that bran anything is the choice of grandparents. However, there is a reason why those grandparents know what they are talking about. I have heard that half of the suggested fiber intake per day can be found in bran. We all need fiber by the way. Bran also has iron and magnesium that we need. Hence, bran is pretty good for us. It is no wander why bran muffins are so popular. Bran muffins are the perfect make before-hand breakfast item. These muffins also make for a good snack. Yet, I also like to make bran muffins to have on hand for a quick breakfast on the go. However, they are also nice to have when company comes over. Wheat bran is probably not something that you have on hand. However, it is available online. I found wheat bran on Amazon. They have many brands to choose from and at decent prices too. I use Coconut Palm Sugar as an alternative to brown sugar. Hence, this recipe is better on my sugar levels than brown sugar would have it be. You can find Coconut Palm Sugar on Amazon as well. Lastly, I am using Greek Yogurt in this recipe. I use Greek Yogurt where some recipes may call for milk or heavy cream. An alternative to Greek Yogurt would be to use a heavy cream or whole milk. Bran muffins are a popular muffin that many enjoy in the morning or any time of the day. Continue reading >>

Healthy Morning Glory Bran Muffins | Amy's Healthy Baking

Healthy Morning Glory Bran Muffins | Amy's Healthy Baking

A healthy recipe for cozy bran muffins full of wholesome ingredients. My family called these the BEST muffins theyve ever hadand theyre just 136 calories! During my sophomore year of college, I lived in an apartment located about a mile away from campus along with three other girls. Nearly every morning after turning off my alarm clock, I climbed down the ladder of my lofted bed, pulled on my workout clothes, and headed out the door for a run. Still half asleep and not quite fully coherent, I typically stuck with the same route (I lacked the brainpower to remember new directions and street names that early in the morning!). I followed the asphalt path that meandered around a few different parks in the residential neighborhoods behind our apartment complex, mentally picking out my favorite houses as I passed by the quiet roads. For about two weeks during the early spring and again in the late summer, I really looked forward to a particular stretch of my route. A long straight section, bordered by the houses wooden backyard fences on the right and an empty riverbed on the left, it pointed due east. Since I started my run at almost the same time every single day, the bright yellow sun was just starting to peek out over the horizon as I jogged down that stretch during those four special weeks, painting the sky with soft pinks and tangerine hues, while the deep purple of the night began to fade. I felt like I was witnessing an artist at work as those rich colors of dawn rippled farther and farther across the dawn sky, and on those days, I always finished my run full of peace and inspiration. Once I returned home and showered, I typically poured myself a small bowl of my favorite Trader Joes cereal to slowly savor as my post-workout fuel, but these Morning Glory Bran Muffins Continue reading >>

Stir together the bran, flour, soda and baking powder. Stir in raisins and set aside. Blend the milk, molasses, oil and egg. Add to the dry ingredients and mix just until moistened. Spoon into 12 greased muffin tins. Bake for 15 minutes at 400ºF or until muffins pull away from sides of cups. Replace the raisins with an equal amount of chopped dates for delicious date bran muffins. Replace the raisins with dried cranberries for a wonderful taste treat. A great combination is cranberries and blueberries. Use fresh or frozen blueberries and mix them with the flour so they don’t sink to the bottom of the muffins. Add 1/2 cup apple sauce for extra moisture and sweeetness. If you do this, use less honey. A high fibre bran muffin recipe like this one isn’t just good, it’s good for you. Made with whole wheat flour and wheat bran, this is a very healthy muffin recipe your family will love. This can be a great diabetes recipe for some diabetics. Most diabetics do best with few carbs, so you may be able to tolerate the carb count of this recipe. To make it a better diabetic recipe, I would replace the honey or molasses with stevia or coconut sugar, both MUCH lower on the glycemic index. Add more milk to make up the volume of liquid needed in the recipe. If you do that, the sugar replacement will work well, and it will make this a much better recipe for diabetics.

Dangerfood: Bran Muffins

Dangerfood: Bran Muffins

Bran muffins look like a healthier option in the pastry case, but are they really? While most of the ingredients may offer some health benefits, the problem is that most bran muffins sold in stores and restaurants pack in loads of calories that can wreak havoc on the waistline — and make it awfully hard to fend off that muffin top (not the yummy kind). Bran Damage — Why It’s Dangerous Photo by Caitlin Covington Bran, the outer layer of grains such as oat, rice, and wheat, does have some great benefits: It's rich in fiber, omega, starch, protein, vitamins and dietary minerals. One serving (about a third of a cup) contains 14 percent of the recommended daily dose of protein and 28 percent of the recommended daily intake of dietary fiber. Some studies show oat bran may also lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels when compared to other types of bran, including from wheat . Bread products containing oat bran may also be helpful in controlling diabetes, since studies show it could help control the body’s response to sugar, lessening the body's glycemic response (or how much insulin the body releases to deal with the carbohydrates in food) . So what's the problem with today’s bran muffins — and most muffins in general? They may be made with healthy ingredients, but the real culprit is portion size. Many muffins sold in stores and restaurants are massive, topping out at more than 350 calories each! That’s just as many as some popular types of cream-filled doughnuts. In fact, popular chain Dunkin Donuts' Honey Bran Raisin muffin clocks in at a whopping 440 calories, while their classic Bavarian Kreme donut is a (comparatively measly) 270 calories. Some bran muffins made with butter and oil contain high amounts of saturated fat, which might have their own health Continue reading >>

You have reached the maximum number of saved studies (100). Please remove one or more studies before adding more. Effect of Nuts vs. a Wheat Bran Muffin in Type 2 Diabetes The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Read our disclaimer for details. ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT00410722 Verified January 2013 by David Jenkins, University of Toronto. Recruitment status was: Active, not recruiting Information provided by (Responsible Party): Top of Page Study Description Study Design Arms and Interventions Outcome Measures Eligibility Criteria Contacts and Locations More Information To determine if tree nuts (Almonds, Hazelnuts, Pistachios, Peanuts, Macadamia nuts, Pecans, Walnuts and Cashews) improve glycemic control in type 2 diabetes, as assessed by HbA1c and serum fructosamine, and to assess whether these outcomes relate to improvements in cardiovascular health (i.e. plasma lipids and measures of oxidative stress, inflammatory biomarkers and nitric oxide generation). The investigators have found that nuts tend to reduce the glycemic index of bread and have little effect of raising blood glucose on their own. Therefore the investigators believe that they would be ideal foods to displace high glycemic foods from the diet and lower the dietary glycemic load. This will result in improved blood glucose control in type 2 diabetes, with additional benefits on coronary heart disease risk factors due to other effects of nuts.

Raisin Bran Muffins

Raisin Bran Muffins

Stir up this batch of hearty, low-fat morning treats. Kissed with brown sugar, they're moist and taste more indulgent than they are. Source: Everyday Food, January/February 2007 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour (spooned and leveled) 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled) 1. Preheat oven to 400. Lightly oil a 6-cup standard muffin tin, or use paper liners. In a medium bowl, combine cereal and milk; let stand until softened, about 5 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. 2. Stir oil, egg, and sugar into cereal mixture. Fold in flour mixture. Divide batter among cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in tin 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack; let cool completely, or serve warm. Store up to 5 days at room temperature in a resealable plastic bag. Well I have to say this is a great basic recipe. The first time I made these I didn't have whole wheat flour so I used an equal amount of white , I also didn't have brown sugar so I used a proper equivalent of molasses and the muffins looked beautiful when they were baked but tasted sort of dry. The second time I made these muffins I had brown sugar and whole wheat flour to properly follow instructions but used part Raisin Bran cereal, part Special K vanilla almond cereal,, and Cranberry Almond Crunch cereal. Oh My goodness, what a lovely mix especially with the cranberries from the cereal. I've been making these muffins now for about a month significant other takes them to work for his breakfast he loves them. I've added apple pie filling, bananas, pecans, currants, cherries, cranberries, and different dried fruit not all at the same time of course, and each time it taste a little different I get rave reviews he l Continue reading >>
