*Oat Bran Muffins

2 1/2 C. uncooked oat bran
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. salt (I use 2!!!)
2 tsps. cinnamon
2 egg subs. (I use Energ)
3/4 C. water
2/3 C Vegetable Glycerin
2 tsps. vanilla extract
4 Tbs. ghee
1/4 C. nuts (optional for those not food combining)

Preheat oven to 425F, mix the dry with the dry, the wet with the wet and add any nuts last...Put into ghee-greased muffin pan--I use only ten of the holes so that each muffin is exactly one serving of oat bran...Bake for 10-20 minutes, or until middles are settled--Try to get to them just before they start smoking (veg. gly. tends to do that at just the time that they're done)--If it IS smoking it's no biggy--they'll get eaten all the same--by you or someone else--they're lovely! Oh, I also sprinkle a little stevia extract on then right before eating to make them a tad bit sweeter! Good luck and I hope you disregard the first version of this recipe because I actually copied it down wrong!! Sorry Sheila!! HA! I wonder if your muffins actually did come out as well as you said they did!! HA! Big Grin

Hey Spectra--Veg. gly. is a sweetener so flax gel wouldn't work in it's place...But, if you want to make these unsweetened and then sprinkle stevia on top once they're done (I used to do this all the time before discovering veg. gly. and it's grand just the same!! Smile) then i would substitute water for the veg. gly.--You may want to use a tiny bit less of it in comparison...Actually maybe if you used half flax gel, half water it would be perfect...As for oat bran--the bran is the outer kernel of the oat--so meal and rolled oats are different. You should be able to find the bran right beside them at the health food store...Good luck!! Big Grin

Hi, I tried a recipe and in place of vegetable glycerin used water with some arrowroot added to make it a consistency of vegetable glycerin. It seemed to work well. I then substituted the veg. glycerin with 1/4 tsp. stevia.
Arrowroot is a thickener. Boil the water minus a tbsp. or so, then add a tbps cold water with about 2 tsp. arrowroot and stir till it becomes thick. Oh, but if you need to do it for 2/3 cupe water, you'll need more arrowroot to thicken it...but you'll sorta have to experiment.
Just a suggestion,
happy baking, joejoe
Ashley, I'm finally getting around to adding my ingredients to the list. They really turned out good. I just thawed one. I must say it is the best thing I've baked in a long time(that I can eat). Some of these measurements are guesses. I just threw some things in!

2 1/2 cups oatbran
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup or more of glycerin
some stevia
2 TBL butter
1/4 cup almond butter
some coconut
2 eggs (seperated)

Mix dry ingredients. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks. Mix rest of wet ingredients. Mix dry and wet ingredients. Fold in egg whites gently. Put in muffin pan lined with papers(no gheeing of pan required, and hardly any clean-up). I got 12 muffins out of this. Bake in 400 oven for about 20 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean. They freeze really well. I put butter and stevia and cinnamon on before eating. Delicious!!! Oh, just a note. When you take them out of freezer, take off the paper. It comes off easier when frozen.
Ashley, See, I told you they turned out good!! You doubted me, didn't you? Big Grin I usually try to combine right, but once in awhile, this is my form of cheating. They are really good. I'm so glad you gave me the recipe. Hey, did ya check out any of my recipes? They don't sound like much, but they are yummy. Haven't had a NEED lately for your soup!!! It figures, now that I have a recipe for a soup that sounds good and really gets things going, I wouldn't need it. Guess, I shouldn't complain! Take care! Sheila
Hey Sheila!! Your recipes sound great but I'm on a VERY strict rotational diet (rotating food families as well) and practice very strict food combining so I'll have to wait a while before I can indulge--Not to mention that a horrible craving for almond butter led to me becoming allergic to it!! Roll Eyes Frown!!! Oh well, I tend to learn the hard way! In any case, take care and I'll talk to you soon!! Smile
