Apple Carrot Muffins

  • 1 3/4 cups bran cereal
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup peeled and finely chopped apple
  • 3/4 cup grated carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line 12 muffin cups with paper liners. Mix bran cereal, flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt together in a bowl. Beat egg, buttermilk, and canola oil in a separate bowl. Pour liquid ingredients into bran mixture; gently stir in apple, carrot, and walnuts. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups, filling them about 3/4 full. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool in pans for 5 minutes before removing muffins to finish cooling on a wire rack.
