  1. Apple Oat Bran Muffins

    Commercially baked muffins have become as large as small birthday cakes and
    loaded with calories and fat. These muffins, on the other hand, are delicious
    and loaded with fiber and heart-friendly oat bran. They may truly be the
    breakfast of champions. You may use Granny Smith or Gravenstein apples, but feel
    free to try your favorite green apple. You can freeze what you don't consume
    right away for a later date.

    Expeller-pressed canola oil for oiling the muffin pan
    2 large green cooking apples
    2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
    1 cup unbleached white flour
    1 1/4 cups oat bran
    2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    1 12-ounce can apple juice concentrate, thawed
    1 cup water

    Heat oven to 325 F. Lightly oil muffin pan. Peel and core apples; chop them
    coarsely. Set aside. In a mixing bowl, stir together pastry flour, white flour, oat
    bran, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add thawed apple-juice concentrate, chopped
    apples, and enough water to make a light batter. Mix just enough to moisten all
    ingredients. Divide batter among the muffin cups and bake till lightly browned,
    25-30 minutes. Remove muffins from cups while hot.
