Banana Apple Raisin Bran Muffins

If you are looking for a healthy mid day snack, here it is! I didn't calculate how much fiber this contains but probably contains 100% of your daily fiber, but you wouldn't even know it. The taste of banana comes through first, then leaves room for the apple and cinnamon to come through, the molasses and raisins, the flavors all being unwrapped one at a time.

Banana Apple Raisin Bran Muffins
- 3 bananas (very ripe)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup of molasses
- 1/4 cup of milk (bring to a simmer)
- 3/4 cup whole bran cereal
-  1 Cup Flour
- 1 Tsp Baking Soda
- 2 Tsp ground Cinnamon
- 1/2 Raisins
- 1 Apple, finely chopped

1. Preheat your oven to 350F, butter your molds or prepare your muffin tin papers. This recipe makes 12 muffins.
2. In a large bowl, use your whisk to mash up your bananas. Add to them, the eggs. In the same measuring cup, measure out the oil, pouring in the banana mixture and then measuring out the molasses (this way the molasses will not stick to the measuring cup). Whisk all together.
3. In a small bowl, pour the hot milk over the bran and stir gently with a spoon for the bran to soak up the milk. Add this to the banana mixture and start stirring with a spatula.
4. Sift together the flour, cinnamon and baking soda then add to the wet mixture. Fold in the apple pieces and raisins.
5. Spoon the mixture equally in 12 muffin tins and bake in your preheated 350F oven for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

As always, enjoy warm wit butter, nothing better!
