Low-Fat Plum Bran Muffins

  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat bran or oat bran
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 3/4 cup apple butter
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt or nonfat buttermilk
  • 1 cup chopped skinned fresh plums (about 2 medium)
  • 1/2 cup chopped prunes
  • Muffin tins
  • Nonstick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, combine flour, bran, baking powder, and baking soda and stir to mix well. Add apple butter, yogurt or buttermilk, and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in plums and prunes. Lightly spray 6 cups of large muffin tin or 12 cups of small muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray and fill each cup 3/4 full with batter. Bake smaller muffins for 12 to 14 minutes and full-sized muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in center of muffin comes out clean. Let sit for 5 minutes before removing muffins from tin. Serve warm or at room temperature.
Depending on the size of your muffin tins, this recipe should make 12 small or 6 large muffins (6 servings).
