APPLE BRAN MUFFINS

This is a recipe I have had for many years. I do not remember where I got it.

2 cups bran flakes cereal
1 cup milk (skim is healthier)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
3 tbsp salad oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup toasted almonds, chopped (walnuts also work well)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease 12 muffin pan cups and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the bran flakes and milk. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes. In another bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt; set aside. To the bran flakes, add eggs, applesauce, oil, and vanilla; beat well. Stir in the dry ingredients and nuts just until moistened. Fill the muffin cups 3/4s full. Bake at 25 to 30 minutes, until lightly browned and tops spring back when touched. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
