    Step 1

    Lets get started!

    Step 2

    Pre-heat oven to 350 and onwards to prep!

    Step 3

    This recipe calls for buttermilk but if you, like me, don't have much of a need on a regular basis, milk with vinegar or lime juice will do!

    Step 4

    For every half cup of buttermilk: start with adding a half tablespoon of vinegar to your measuring cup. If you have a liquid measuring cup that would be better.

    Step 5

    Fill the rest of the measuring cup with milk. Repeat this 3 times to total 1 1/2 cups for this recipe.

    Step 6

    Pour into a container and mix!

    Step 7

    We're gonna need 1 cup wheat bran.

    Step 8

    Pour into your mixing bowl. We're gonna start with all the dry ingredients first because if you add the wet stuff at the same time you can end up with clumps of flour and clumps if salt, etc.

    Step 9

    2/3 of a cup all purpose flour

    Step 10

    Into your mixing bowl!

    Step 11

    2/3 of a cup whole wheat flour

    Step 12

    And into the bowl!

    Step 13

    1 and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

    Step 14

    You guessed it, into the bowl!

    Step 15

    1/8 of a teaspoon salt

    Step 16

    Into the bowl!!

    Step 17

    1/4 cup flax seed. This stuff is great to give your muffin a little crunch!

    Step 18

    Yep, with the rest of it!

    Step 19

    Finally, mix it well to make it anti clumpy!

    Step 20


    Step 21

    New bowl! Add 1/3 cup sugar

    Step 22

    Into this new bowl, where all the wet ingredients will go. You'd ideally get a round bowl but hey, whatever you've got!

    Step 23

    1/2 cup applesauce!

    Step 24

    Liquid bowl

    Step 25

    1 and 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    Step 26

    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Step 27

    Mix mix mix!

    Step 28

    Yeah, look at that... Deliciousness.. Yeah.. It tastes good! Try it!

    Step 29

    Oh yeah! The milk! Add that! 1 and 1/4 cup buttermilk so a little less than that of milk and 1 and 1/4 tablespoon vinegar or lime juice

    Step 30

    Add an egg! I forgot until after I added the liquids to the dry stuff. No big!

    Step 31

    Mix and make sure the sugar is as dissolved as its gonna get with cold ingredients

    Step 32

    Add to the dry stuff

    Step 33

    Mix well

    Step 34

    This should be the consistency. You can add up to 2 tablespoons of water or applesauce if you'd like for moister muffins

    Step 35

    Butter your muffin tin or line it with cupcake liners

    Step 36

    All finished!

    Step 37

    Annnnd add the batter

    Step 38


    Step 39

    Into the preheated oven!

    Step 40

    All done! So yummy looking!!
