Molasses Peanut Butter Raisin Bran Muffins - Wheat Flour

I thought these were DELICIOUS - as did my taste testers.  I liked the raisins from the cereal.   Everyone LOVED the  strong molasses flavor. 

Adapted from this recipe and  this recipe .

1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I use Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour )
1 and 1/2 cups Raisin Bran cereal
1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup Sucanat   (or brown sugar) (I use Barry Farm Sucanat)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp allspice
2 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce 
2 large very ripe bananas, mashed  (if your bananas are smaller, you will probably need to increase the liquid by 2-4 Tbsp)

Mix the vanilla, molasses, peanut butter, applesauce, and 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.   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 Pan,Casabella 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 !!!
