Solar Bran Muffins

These butter free muffins come out great in the Sun Oven. The tops are crusty but the crumb stays moist and delicious.

Honey Oat Bran Muffins

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup oat bran flakes

2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup molasses

1/4 cup honey

1 cup milk

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup raisins

1 cup chopped pecans

Preparation

Set Sun Oven out to preheat. Spray two 6-cup muffin tins with cooking spray or line with paper or silicone baking cups; set aside.

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, bran flakes, baking powder, baking soda, and pie spice; set aside. In a large bowl beat the eggs, sugar, molasses, honey, milk, and vanilla until blended. Using a wooden spoon stir the flour mixture into the egg mixture until just blended. Fold in the raisins and pecans.

Divide half of the batter evenly between the muffin cups. Reserve remaining batter for a second batch. Bake in the Sun Oven until tops are browned and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean; 30 to 45 minutes. Allow the muffins to cool for 10 minutes then remove them from the pans and cool completely on a rack. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Makes 24 muffins.
