Molasses Bran Muffins

I love Molasses...Plus molasses is high in calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin B6

  • 1 cup wheat bran (I used bran flakes)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ½ cup unflavored protein powder (I used Vega Almondilla Smoothie Mix)
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds, or ground flax (I used 1 tbsp of each)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 1 1/3 cup applesauce (made from my mom's home grown apples)
  • 2 Tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup chopped walnuts
In a medium bowl combine the bran, flour, protein powder, chia, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. 
In another bowl, mix together the almond milk, molasses, applesauce, oil, and vanilla.
Add the bran mixture to the molasses mixture.
Stir in the raisins and walnuts.
Spoon into 12 muffin tin holes and bake at 400 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.
Let cool in muffin tin, and then transfer to a cooling rack.
