Trying to eliminate added sugar from my diet but still craving a sweet treat, I developed these bran muffins based on some pumpkin muffins I make for my kids. The only sweetness comes from the raisins, which you can increase or omit if you prefer. Enjoy.

  • Plump raisins by microwaving them in a microwave-safe bowl with water to cover for 2 minutes. Drain water and set raisins aside.

  • Combine flour, wheat bran, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and baking powder in a bowl.

  • Combine pumpkin, canola oil, eggs, and vanilla extract in a separate bowl. Blend using an electric hand mixer on low speed. Add flour mixture and blend until combined. Fold in plumped raisins. Divide batter evenly between the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
