Apple Oat Bran Muffins - Wheat Flour

These came out REALLY REALLY good.  These are nice and moist and have a GREAT flavor.  The dominant flavors are the apple and cinnamon.

The batter is on the thinner side when pouring into the muffin tins.

1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour )
1 cup Oat Bran (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/4 cup Sucanat  (I use Barry Farm)  (or brown sugar)
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 - 12 oz can apple juice concentrate, thawed
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups chopped apples, peeled
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)

Mix apple juice concentrate, vanilla, apples and mashed bananas in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin PanCasabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop  is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
