These fellas are flourless and full of fiber and bowel stimulating goodness! They’re pretty hearty and sweet for the amount of sweetener that goes into it – I’m guessing you use less sweetener and they would still come out tasty and delicious.
1 cup chopped apple (about 1 apple)
1 cup chopped pitted prunes
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup yogurt
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp grated orange peel (use only organic)
2 cups oat bran
2 tsp baking powder (alum free please!)
Preheat the oven to 400F
Line a muffin tin with paper cups. Prepare the apples and prunes and set them aside, so that they’ll be ready to stir into the batter later on.
Whisk together the maple syrup, yogurt, oil and egg. Combine the dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Fold the liquid mixture into the dry ingredients until just wet. Stir in the chopped apples and prunes.
Divide the batter into the cups, filling almost to the top because they don’t rise much.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden and a toothpick comes out clean if inserted.
