Recipe: Gluten Free Cinnmon Pecan Oat Bran Muffins

This recipe was inspired by another oat bran recipe I saw, but as is typical for me I had to change it around to suit my own tastes.

Cinnamon Pecan Oat Bran Muffins

Dry Ingredients:
  • 1 3/4 cups oat bran
  • 1/4 cup ground flax
  • 2 TBS Shelled Hemp Seeds
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 TBS ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • dash of salt
Wet Ingredients:
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 TBS light agave syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. liquid stevia
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  •  1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Combine all dry ingredients.  Then add in all liquid ingredients.  Mix well.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Makes 12 muffins.

These muffins are incredibly delicious.  The pecans and hemp seeds make them nutty, while the stevia and agave give them a light sweetness.  They are dense without being heavy and make a delicious snack or breakfast with a piece of fruit.

I definitely encourage you all to give them a try!
