Vegan wheat flour and oat bran muffin

The other day when I had been to Nilgiri's super market I saw oat bran. I remembered joyofbaking's oat bran recipe. So I bought it and made the muffins. I made a vegan version of the muffin and it came out very well. I replaced the egg with 1/4 cup applesauce and milk with soy milk. I did not have molasses, so after some thought process I decided to substitute with lion date syrup. The muffins came out surprisingly well and it tasted too good. As mentioned in the original recipe the oat bran gives a nutty flavour to the muffin which I enhanced by adding some walnuts.

Ingredients to make around 12 medium sized muffins

Whole wheat flour: 1 cup Oat bran: 1 cup Light brown sugar: 1/3 cup(I used demerra sugar) Baking powder: 1 1/2 tsp Baking soda: 1/2 tsp Salt: 1/4 tsp Ground cinnamon: 1/4 tsp Apple sauce: 1/4 tsp Unsulphured molasses: 1/4 cup(I used Lion brand date syrup) Pure vanilla extract: 1 tsp Canola oil: 2 tbsp(I used refined oil) Soy milk: 1 1/4 cup Walnut: 1/4 cup

1. Preheat the oven to 205 degrees C. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or grease the tin with vegetable oil. 2. Mix flour, oat bran, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon in a bowl. 3. Whisk together the apple sauce, molasses, vanilla extract, oil and soy milk in another large bowl. 4. Add the dry mixture to the wet mixture and stir just until moistened. Gently stir in the walnuts. (The batter will be thin.) 5. Fill the muffin cups with a ladle of batter and bake for about 12 to 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted at the center of the muffin comes out clean.
These muffins make for a hearty and healthy breakfast.

  7. A short moment later, James traded for his share for the business to Tom for just a
    second-hand Volkswagen Beetle automobile, probably a deal he
    took to later are sorry for. Profit margins are suffering in the meantime
    and there is a long list of companies battling rising costs of the commodities.
    They built a hugely successful business on that one competitive difference.

    If you have lower defence you can survive as well, but it won't be as easy. Data mining is mostly a relatively new term that represents the process by that predictive patterns are made from information.
