Cornmeal and Oat Bran muffins (no dairy)

These are egg free and milk free. They are a fairly dry--so they are for those who are desperate for dairy free oat bran muffins. I added some applesauce and they are not as dry. I will have to experiment at some point. Must make sure not to over cook. Keep frozen and then nuke them. Adding chopped apples helps too. Mince meat helps make them more moist. I found the recipe from McDougall's webpage. You can also place 1/2 the batter in the tin and top with a few tablespoons of mince meat and then top with the rest of the batter. See BELOW FOR A BETTER RECIPE

2 cups of cornmeal
2 cups of oat bran
4 tsp baking powder (Can add salt if desired)
2 cups unsweetened apple juice (might try adding a little applesauce in future)
Yes, add a 1/3 to 1/2 cup of applesauce
Couple of tablespoons of mincemeat adds flavor and moisture.(or raisins) Sprinkling the tops with cinnamon is good too.

Preheat oven to 350

Sift ingredients. Add wet ingredients stirring until just mixed. Spoon into pam sprayed muffin tins.(I didn't even have to use pam in my tins) Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned. Watch carefully--you don't want to over cook these.

Freeze and nuke till warm and serve with apple butter

BETTER RECIPE

2 cups of cornmeal(Bob's medium grind cornmeal)
2 cups of oat bran
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon salt to taste
2 cups almond milk
1/2 cup of applesauce
1 banana mashed with some cinnamon sprinkled over it
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp or so agave nectar
handful of raisins

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients (add raisins last). Place in 12 cup muffin tin. Preheat oven to 400 but turn down immediately to 350 when you place the muffins in oven. Cook 15 to 20 minutes. These are much tastier!
