Honey Yogurt Raisin Bran Muffins
They are full of Greek yogurt with honey, sour cream, avocado and applesauce. And more honey. And brown sugar. Seriously. But they aren't overly sweet, they just have a nice pleasant taste.
Here's what you need to make 24 large muffins:
1 cup of Greek Yogurt with Honey
1 cup of Sour Cream
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup of brown sugar, not packed
1/3 cup of applesauce. I use homemade so there is no extra sugar
1/3 cup of Canola Oil (approximate) What you do is put 1/3 cup applesauce in a measuring cup and add the mashed avocado. Then pour in your oil until the liquid reaches the 1 cup mark
2 cups bran. Buy the kind that says it is for making muffins
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2-3 Tbsp. liquid honey
1 cup raisins (or blueberries)
You'll notice in the picture that there is no honey, flour or sour cream showing. I forgot to put the flour in the picture but there's no honey or sour cream in it because I didn't know I was going to add them until I started making the batter! That's right. I didn't have enough Greek yogurt so I added a cup of sour cream. And I added honey at the end because the batter was too dry. A serendipity moment...
Here's what to do. You're going to need 3 bowls, one should be fairly big.

|Yogurt and Sour Cream Mixture|
|Mixing it all together|
If the batter is too dry, add some more oil or applesauce.
Now coat the raisins in flour by putting them in a small dish of flour, giving them a good shake then toss them into a strainer to shake the excess flour off. This prevents the raisins from clumping together when you add them to the muffin mixture.
Using paper muffin liners, line 2 dozen large muffin cups and drop the batter into each with a large spoon.
Bake at 350' for 25-30 minutes. Mine in the photo below cooked about 5 minutes too long but they were still amazingly delicious!
