Apple Oat-Bran Muffins

I have not made these yet--but glad to find a fatfree muffin recipe.  This is
from Dr. Andrew Weil's latest book and the recipe is also posted at his web


Makes 12 muffins.

2 large green cooking apples (he suggests Granny Smith or Gravenstein, others
2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1 cup unbleached white flour
1 1/4 cups oat bran
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 12-ounce can apple juice concentrate
1 cup water

Heat oven to 325° F. Lightly oil muffin tin. Peel and core apples and chop
coarsely. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, sift together pastry flour, white flour, oat bran, baking
soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Add thawed apple-juice concentrate, chopped apples, and enough water to make a
light batter.

Mix just enough to moisten all ingredients. Divide batter among the muffin
cups (makes 12) and bake till lightly browned, 25-30 minutes.

Remove muffins from cups while hot.

A question:  Can marmite or vegemite be purchased in the United States?
