Muesli Muffins


A hearty oat mixture is baked into these treats; they derive most of their moisture and sweetness from bananas and applesauce.

  • 3/4 cup cake flour, (not self-rising)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat bran
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup finely chopped bananas
  • 2/3 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups Blueberry-Walnut Muesli
  • 1/2 cup dried blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk together flours, bran, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl; set aside.

  2. Put butter and brown sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing until combined after each addition. Add bananas, applesauce, and vanilla; mix until combined. Reduce speed to low. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined. Stir in 3/4 cup muesli and the blueberries.

  3. Line 10 cups of a standard (12-cup) muffin tin with paper liners. Divide batter among cups, filling to rims. Sprinkle tops with remaining 1/2 cup muesli. Bake until a cake tester inserted into centers comes out clean, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely in tin on a wire rack.
