I’m still going strong on getting back to our nice Sunday evening dinners.  Even though there were only 5 of us in town this weekend, I still went all out including the linens and china.  However, I should have cut back the amount of food I prepared.  It didn’t even cross my mind.   When we all sat down, we burst out laughing at the proportion of food to people.
That was when I had a “flash-forward” moment.  I had the sobering realization that the number of people at my dinner table is only going to shrink in the years to come.  I began to cry and my children just rolled their eyes at their insane mother.
Applesauce Oat Bran Muffins

Sunday dinners have to include some form of homemade bread,  but I was short on time so I needed something quick.  These muffins are dense, moist and not too sweet.  They were perfect for our dinner and we slathered them with a bit of butter while they were warm.  The next morning, my kids ate them for breakfast and were sad when there wasn’t enough for seconds.  So, in short, they were a keeper!

No reviews


  • 1/2 C brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 C oat bran
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C applesauce
  • 1/4 C oil


  1. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Line your muffin pans with paper liners or you can also use nonstick spray.  Mix together the dry ingredients.  Add all the wet ingredients and mix well until completely blended.
  2. Evenly scoop the batter between the 12 papers.  A large ice cream scoop works well.  Let the batter stand for 10 minutes, and then bake them for  15-18 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove from the pan and cool on a rack.

Hey Joyce! I would try something like Whole Foods or a more speciality store, or I know Amazon also has it you can order.

Bob’s Red Mill – it’s carried at Whole Foods or you can order directly from their website.

Do you think whole wheat flour would work? Or whole wheat white flour?

Since I’ve never made the recipe with flour, I can’t say for sure. Oat bran has a very different texture than flour so the measurements won’t be a straight 1 to 1 substitution.

Your recipe has flour in it. I think they wanted to know if the flour can be replaced with ww flour.
