Mighty Muffins
 
2 cup  original all-bran with enough hot water to cover
1 cup  (2 sticks) butter or margarine, or 1 cup vegetable oil (your choice)
1/2 cup  white sugar
1/4 cup  brown sugar
4   eggs
1   16oz jar of applesauce
4 cup  whole-wheat flour
2 tsp  baking soda
1 tsp  salt
3/4 tsp  allspice
3/4 tsp  nutmeg
1/2 tsp  cinnamon
1/4 tsp  ground cloves
1 medium  orange, finely chopped (including peel)
  the peel of 2 other oranges, finely chopped
1   18oz box old-fashioned oats
1 lb.  pkg. flax seeds (available at health food stores)
 
in a large measuring cup, cover the all-bran with hot tap water. in a 
large bowl, cream butter, margarine or oil with sugar and eggs. add 
applesauce. stir in flour, soda, salt, allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and 
ground cloves. add orange and peel. then add oats and flax seeds. add 
bran, which should have soaked up all the water. pour batter into muffin 
tins, which have been sprayed with nonstick vegetable cooking spray. (i 
use the foil pans sprayed with pam so the muffins can be easily removed.) 
bake in a preheated 350-degree oven for 45 minutes. remove from oven and 
cool on wire racks after removing from pans. freeze in reclosable plastic 
bags. wrap each muffin in a paper towel and heat in microwave oven for 
about 1 minute to serve. note: whenever i peel an orange, i always save 
the peeling and put in plastic bags in the freezer to use in these 
muffins. the flax seeds take the place of nuts. you can also add chopped 
apple. 
 
makes 30 muffins. these need to be refrigerated 
because with all the fruit, they will spoil quickly.
