  • Combine wheat bran, prune juice, yogurt, currants, molasses, oil, egg, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Let stand for 10 minutes.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Stir dry ingredients into the bran mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not overmix.

  • Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling each about three-quarters full. Bake in the center of the oven for 20 minutes.

  • Turn muffins out of the pan, and let them cool on a rack.

Cook's Notes

If you make extra muffins, wrap each one in foil and store them all in a plastic bag in the freezer. Defrost at room temperature overnight or in the oven before breakfast.

Can I substitute honey or agave or real maple syrup for molasses? I don't like the taste of molasses...
