weight loss bran muffins

Low-Fat Plum Bran Muffins
1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cups wheat bran or oat bran
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup apple butter
1/2 cup nonfat buttermilk or plain nonfat yogurt
2 egg whites
1 cup chopped skinned fresh plums (about 2 medium)
1/2 cup chopped prunes

Combine flour, bran, baking powder, and baking soda, and stir to mix well. Add the apple butter, buttermilk or yogurt, and egg whites, and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in plums and prunes. Coat muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray, and fill 3/4 full with the batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 16 to 18 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let sit for five minutes before removing. Serve warm or at room temperature.

These are a great treat for P90x or whatever your weight loss program is.

Depending on the size of your muffin tins, this recipe should make between 6 and 12 muffins.
