These Plum Oat Bran Muffins are moist and not too sweet, perfect for a morning run-out-the-door breakfast or an afternoon snack. I used plums, but you can use any soft fruit you want (nectarines, peaches…)!
Our freezer is always stocked with muffins for busy days. I’m a fan of using local produce and what’s in season where possible and that’s where these Plum Oat Bran Muffins Came from! Muffins are one of those things that are easy to make a big batch of while you already have all your ingredients out. If you’re in the muffin making mood try my Sneaky Mommy Muffins, Double Apple Muffins, Veggie Muffins, or Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Muffins!
Freeze any extras for a quick snack or breakfast for hectic mornings, or bake them in mini muffin tins for a perfect snack for the little ones (just adjust the baking time to approximately 12-15 minutes).
Plum Oat Bran Muffins
These Plum Oat Bran Muffins make a great afternoon snack or grab-n-go breakfast!
- 2 cups diced plums (I used Italian prune plums)
- 1 tablespoons honey
- 2 cups flour
- 1 1/3 cups oat bran
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest (from one lemon)
- 2 large eggs (beaten)
- 1 cup milk
- ½ cup vanilla yogurt
- ½ cup melted butter (or vegetable oil)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoon honey
Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease a muffin tin or line it with baking papers.
In a small bowl, combine the plums with 1 tablespoon of the honey, toss, and let it sit until ready to add to the muffin batter.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, oat bran, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and lemon zest. Whisk together.
In a separate medium bowl, combine the eggs, milk, yogurt, melted butter, honey and vanilla. Whisk together.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients using a rubber spatula until just mixed. Fold in the fruit.
Evenly fill the muffin tins with the batter and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove the muffins from the tin onto a baking rack to cool.
