Oat Bran Apple Cinnamon Muffins

By Deena Hamza

I know I nag and drive my point home more than I should but, really my G.O.Ps, I’m here to open your minds and prove time and time again that healthy whole foods are better than pre-made,  pre-packaged foods loaded with salt and preservatives.

I hear you. Healthy food appears boring, stale, and bland and even Rihanna told Ryan Seacrest that healthy food is gross. Rihanna knows all, right? Can I get a HELL NO?! Healthy food is awesome and comes with the long-term reward of longevity. Try these oat bran apple cinnamon muffins as an alternative for meals 1- 3.


  • 1/2 C oat bran
  • 1 C whole-wheat flour
  • 1/4 C ground flaxseed
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1/4 C sugar
  • 1/3 C applesauce
  • 1/4 C chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together bran, flour, flaxseed, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together egg and oil until smooth. Stir in applesauce and sugar. Combine mixtures and fold in pecans.
  4. Spoon batter into paper-lined muffin cups.
  5. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool on a wire rack.
