Apple Bran Muffins

This hearty autumn favorite is easy to make, low in sugar, and high in fiber. Enjoy Mrs. Bell's Apple Bran Muffins with breakfast or an easy snack on the go.

  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rolled oats (preferably Scottish oats)
  • 1 1/4 cup crushed bran cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground clove
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 large Granny Smith or any tart apple peeled and coarsely grated.


  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 3 1/2 tbsp oats
  • 1 1/2 tbsp butter

Preheat the oven to 375F and line your muffin tin with paper liners.

Mix the eggs, oil, milk, honey, yogurt, and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl until well blended. Add 1 cup of the rolled oats and the crushed bran. Let soak for 15 minutes.

In another bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add the wet ingredients in and mix until blended {the batter will be quite thick}. Stir in the grated apple.

Scoop the batter into the muffin tin and fill up almost to the top {they rise very little}.

Mix brown sugar, butter, and the remaining oats together and sprinkle on top.

Bake for 15-20 minutes {until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean}. Makes 16.

Serve warm with butter or jam.

Mrs. Bell refrigerates the muffins that are leftover and warms them up in the microwave for 10-20 seconds in the morning.
