Banana Bran Muffins

Started as an experiment but turned out really good! A little flat b/c there wasn't a ton of batter to go around, but nice and moist. Hubby and I both downed 2 straight out of the oven.

Next time I might try adding cooked steel cut oats to the batter...

Stir to combine:
1 C wheat or oat bran, or wheat germ
1/4 C whole wheat flour (or use gluten free flour mix)
1 tea baking powder

1/2 tea baking soda
1/2 tea salt

Optional/next time: 1/2 - 3/4 C cooked steel cut oats

Add to food processor with the following. Pulse to grind and combine.
2 C grated apple (from about 2 small apples or 1 large apple)
1 C mashed ripe/overripe bananas (or sub unsweetened applesauce or grated apples)

Finally add and pulse to combine:
1 TB molasses (or sub maple syrup)
2 eggs

1/8 tea ground cardamom seeds (or sub cinnamon)
grated fresh ginger

Pour into greased muffin pan. Sprinkle oats on top.

Cook for 30 minutes in 375 F oven or until done in the middle.
