Original recipe yields 12 muffins



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin tin.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together whole wheat flours, oat bran, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Stir in raisins. In another bowl, mix together yogurt, sour cream, applesauce, maple syrup, egg whites, vanilla, and bananas. Pour yogurt mixture into flour mixture, and mix just enough to combine. Spoon batter into muffin cups. Sprinkle one teaspoon pecans over batter in each cup.
  3. Bake muffins in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and transfer muffins to a wire rack to cool.

I was SOOOO happy with this recipe! I am on Weight Watchers and have figured out that as I prepared them, the muffins are about 2 points each. I used regular whole wheat flour, not pastry flour. I also omitted raisins and did use pecans, but I mixed them in rather than sprinkling them on top. I also used wheat bran instead of oat bran.



These are the best muffins EVER! I make them at least once a week :) I use wheat bran instead of oat bran...it has less calories! Oh, I also couldn't find pastry flour, so I just use whole wheat flour for all of it. And I always use a different flavor of fat free yogurt instead of plain. Also I mix the pecans right into the mix, and bake for about 17 minutes. Perfection! These are so low in fat & calories and totally moist. I recommend them to everyone. Great recipe!



very good for whole grain healthy muffins! I am usually disappointed in the flavor of recipes like this, but this one is tasty and so healthy! I used whole rolled ots instead of oat bran, no raisins and no nuts...and it came out very good. I will make this again for a healthy treat for my kids.
