Muffins, Apple Bran
Source: Unknown
Serves: 12

2 cups peeled, diced apples (2 medium)
3/4 cup apple juice concentrate
1-1/2 tablespoons vanilla
3/4 cup unbleached white flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
3/8 teaspoon lite (or regular) salt
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup wheat bran
2-1/2 tablespoons canola oil
2 egg whites or 1/3 cup egg substitute
1/3 cup currants plumped (or raisins, if currants unavailable)

Combine apple juice concentrate and vanilla. Soak chopped apples in this mixture 15 minutes to overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Meanwhile, mix together dry ingredients: flour, soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and bran. Add oil, lightly beaten egg whites, and plumped currants to the apple mixture, and gently stir.

Pour this over the dry ingredients, and mix with a fork, just until moistened.

Fill muffin cups 3/4 full, and bake for 13-18 minutes. They're done when they spring back to the touch or when a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Let cool 10-15 minutes.
