Pumpkin Bran Muffins

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh or canned pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk*
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
Directions
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a 12-cup** muffin tin with paper liners or grease well if not using liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, wheat bran, granulated sugar, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, eggs, buttermilk, and oil.
