Yields 10-12 regular muffins or 40 mini muffins

These Oat Bran Muffins are great with or without added sweeteners. The recipe is very forgiving and super filling so you aren’t tempted to overeat!


  • 2 1/2 cups uncooked oat bran

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • 1tsp salt (I recommend Real Salt. I use 2 tsp but some thing that’s too much. Start with 1 to see how you like it)

  • 2 tsp cinnamon (omit for unsweetened version)

  • 2 eggs or equivalent substitute

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 2/3 cup vegetable glycerine or other liquid sweetener (omit for unsweetened version. You may also use a granulated sweetener.

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract (omit for unsweetened version)

  • 4 Tbsp coconut oil (butter, ghee, or palm shortening may be substituted)

  • 1/4 C. nuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F.

  2. Mix dry ingredients together and set aside.

  3. Mix wet ingredients in a separate bowl.

  4. Add wets to dries and then add nuts if using.

  5. Put into greased muffin tins (mini or regular size) or for a simpler option (my favorite….cleaning muffin tins is one of my least favorite jobs in the kitchen :-)) simply place on a prepared cookie sheet or baking stone.

  6. Bake for 10-20 minutes until the middles are pretty well set.
