Spicy No Fat Cranberry-Raisin Bran Muffins

Ingredients for Bran Muffins:

In a mixing bowl, combine:

  • ½ cup Brown Sugar (Use C and H as cane sugar does not contain the sulfites beet sugar produces.)
  • ½ cup Blackstrap Molasses (Contains lots of trace minerals.)
  • ½ teaspoon Celtic Sea Salt (Contains bio-available trace minerals.)
  • 2 tablespoons Watkin’s or other Aluminum-Free Baking Powder like Clabber Girl
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon (Good for circulation and your heart.)
  • ½ teaspoon ground Cloves (A natural wormer.)
  • 2 teaspoon dried ground Ginger (Great for circulation.)
  • ½ teaspoon ground Cardamom (Great for digestion.)
  • 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • 2 cups Almond milk, Rice Milk, Oat Milk or 1% Milk (Note: Soy milk contains phytates and goitrogens which bind thyroid hormone making it inactive. If you like soy, use fermented soy products or try soy nuts. Heating inactivates the goitrogen.)
  • 2 Eggs (Great brain and nerve food.)
  • ¾ cup Lighter Bake butter and oil replacement (Great for bowels.)
  • 1 teaspoon pure Vanilla Extract (Used for the brain. Do NOT use imitation—it’s bad for you.)

After the above mixture is beaten until smooth, add in:

  • ½ cup Wheat Germ (Huge amounts of Zinc, Selenium and great for reproductive organs.)
  • 1 cup Unprocessed Bran (FIBER! We all need more of it.)
  • 2 cups Whole Wheat flour (Whole grains take longer to process so are better for our blood sugar levels.)

Then add, last:

  • 1 cup Raisins
  • 1 cup dried Cranberries (Great for the urinary tract and those sphincter muscles. Makes the inside of the bladder slicker so that bacteria can’t stick to it)

Spray a dot of butter-flavored pan spray at the bottom of 24 regular-sized muffin cups. Divide the mixture up equally into the muffin cups (approx. 1/3 cup mix/cup.) Bake in preheated oven at 400°F for 20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.

Makes 24 bran muffins.

Cool, remove from muffin tins and serve, refrigerate or freeze.
