Pecan Glazed Bran Muffins Recipe

I love bran muffins with every fiber of my being. Even more than bran muffins, though, I love pecan glazed bran muffins. They are easy to make and a good-for-you breakfast treat that tastes like dessert.

Just place all muffin ingredients in mixing bowl. Preheat oven to 400F.

BRAN MUFFIN INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 cups wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oat bran
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup milk

Mix until well combined. Set aside while working on the pecan glaze topping.

PECAN GLAZE INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup (one stick) melted butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

Place all pecan glaze ingredients in a medium bowl and give a few stirs.

Cover muffin tins with cooking spray (even on the top of the pan) and then divide pecan glaze between 12 muffin cups. Give glaze a stir in one muffin cup so that it coats the sides as much as possible then fill with a scoop of bran muffin batter. Repeat until all 12 muffins are ready to go in the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes or until muffins are done with a baking sheet on rack under muffin tins to catch possible drips of glaze.

When hot out of the oven, carefully turn muffins upside-down on to a clean baking sheet.

Cute served with a pretty paper doily underneath.

Nutty and super sweet on the outside. Good for you on the inside. The kind of person I long to be. She is a saucy, well-balanced little muffin.
