Got this one from my momma.  One of my childhood favorites.


  • 1 1/4 cups Wheat Flour
  • 3/4 cup shreds of whole bran cereal
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup oil or shortening
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • Optional:  1/2 cup raisins, chopped dates, or chopped apples can be added to batter.


  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Preaheat oven to 400 degrees.

Combine all ingredients except those for toppings.  Mix well.  Add optional ingredients, if desired.  Spoon batter into lined muffin cups, filling 2/3 full. 

In small bowl, combine topping ingredients.  Sprinkle over top of each muffin.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.  Immediately remove from pan.  Serve warm.
