Harvest Bran Muffins
I line the muffin cups with cupcake papers and sometimes use my jumbo muffin pan and adjust the time. After they are thawed, pop them in the microwave for a few seconds on your way out the door for a warm muffin!
Nonstick cooking spray
14 oz. oat-bran muffin mix, like Krusteaz
1/3 c. finely shredded carrot
¼ c. chopped dried apple
¼ c. dried cranberries or coarsely chopped dried tart cherries
3 Tbsp. finely chopped walnuts
1. Preheat oven to 400° F. Coat twelve 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
2. Prepare muffin mix according to package directions; fold in carrot, dried apple, and cranberries. Divide evenly among the prepared muffin cups; sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
3. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden. Let muffins cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes; loosen edges and gently remove from muffin cups.
