Self care and Molasses Bran Muffins

molasses bran muffins

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” ~ Hippocrates

Self care in this home has become as important as soul care.  That’s how I found myself stumbling through pages in cyber space in search of a healthy muffin recipe (*’cause we all know that most muffins are just ugly cupcakes*) to use up the remaining raisin bran cereal crumbling at the bag’s bottom. It’s elusive at times…this attempting to find something that benefits yourself while pleasing every family member small to big. Well I am pleased to say that this one fit the bill with zero added sugar.  Now this mamma is pretty happy while doing my best to disguise joy’s flood so not one would ever know just how healthy these are. SO, if you find me clapping hands behind my back and performing pirouettes in closets, please don’t let my secret out of the bag…at least not that there are raisins hidden in puffs of delightful deliciousness. Excuse me while I scarf one more down with a beautiful cup warmed by green tea.

Molasses Bran Muffins

1 cup white whole wheat flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 1/4 cup milk

1/2 cup molasses

1 egg beaten

2 tbl oil

2 1/2 cups raisin bran cereal

1 tsp. vanilla flavoring

Stir all together in a bowl. Fill paper muffin liners 3/4 way full.  Bake at 375 for 15-20 min until the top bounces back slightly when touched.  Enjoy!
