bran-muffins-4 recipe

 I use this recipe for lowfat bran muffins, slightly modified, from the
 Nabisco  company (I think it actually was printed on a cents-off coupon). 
 I double the recipe and freeze the muffins, then take them to work for
 breakfast--they're defrosted by the time I'm ready to eat them.
 The applesauce substitutes here for added fat.  The resulting muffin is
 quite moist--one of the better bran muffin recipes I've tried, and
 definitely the lowest fat.  The original recipe says there is 2 g fat and
 120 calories per muffin, but it uses 2% milk, only white flour, and no
 dried fruit, so these are probably a bit less fat but somewhat more
 Low Fat Bran Muffins
 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
 2 tsp baking powder
 1/2 tsp baking soda
 1/2 tsp cinnamon
 2 cups 100% bran
 1-1/4 cups skim milk
 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
 1 egg white
 1/2 cup applesauce
 1/2 cup dried cranberries
 Heat oven to 400 F.  Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon in
 large bowl.  Mix cereal, milk and sugar in another bowl; let stand 5
 minutes.  Stir in egg and applesauce.  Add to flour mixture; stir just
 until moistened.  (Batter will be lumpy).  Spoon batter into muffin pan
 lined with foil cups, filling each cup 2/3 full.  Bake for 18 to 20 minutes
 or until browned.  Makes 12.
