Apple Bran Muffins

Homemade applesauce:
1 apple, cored and diced
1/4 cup water
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tbsp brown sugar or honey
1 tbsp cinnamon

Combine ingredients in a saucepan and let simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender and mushy. Using a fork, mash the apples into sauce. For smoother applesauce, peel the apples before cooking.

Muffins:
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup oat bran
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 cup egg beaters (= 1 egg)
1/3 cup soy milk
1/2 cup homemade applesauce
1 apple, cored and diced

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Grease muffin tins with non-stick cooking spray such as Pam. Fill muffin tins and sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon over the tops. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Makes 12 muffins.
