Sunflower Honey Oat Bran Muffins Recipe

1 1/2 cups oat bran
1/2 cup oat flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup unbleached flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup honey
2 tbsp molasses
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Topping

1 tbsp raw sugar
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp rolled oats
1 tbsp sunflower seeds 


Stir together oat bran, flours, baking powder and soda, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs for about a minute. Whisk in milk, oil and vinegar. Stir in honey and molasses. Add dry ingredients a little at a time. Stir in rolled oats and sunflower seeds. Let batter sit at room temperature for at least 15 minutes. Stir together raw sugar and brown sugar plus a few oats and sunflower seeds, and set aside.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line muffin pan with paper cups, if desired. Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Sprinkle the topping over each muffin. Bake 15 to 20 minutes. (A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean.) Remove muffins from pan to cool. Yields a dozen muffins.
