Apple Streusel Bran Muffins


These apple bran muffins are made with natural bran for extra fiber. If you want to make a gourmet version, mix a little applesauce and some streusel topping in with the chopped apples. It makes a nice texture in the middle of each muffin.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup unprocessed wheat bran

  • ¾ cup lightly packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup milk

  • ½ cup vegetable oil

  • 2 large eggs

  • 2 large apples - peeled, cored, and chopped


  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ¼ cup packed brown sugar

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.

  2. Make muffins: Whisk flour, bran, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a large bowl until thoroughly combined.

  3. Whisk milk, vegetable oil, and eggs together in a separate bowl. Pour milk mixture into flour mixture and stir just until combined. Gently stir in apples. Fill the prepared muffin cups about 3/4 full.

  4. Make streusel: Mix flour, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle about 1 heaping teaspoon on top of each muffin.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes.


You can use applesauce or sour cream instead of vegetable oil if preferred.
