STEP 1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
STEP 2
Place muffin liners into a muffin tin and spray the liners with a little nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
STEP 3
If you're out of buttermilk do this quick sub-in: In a small bowl mix milk and lemon juice and let sit for 10 minutes.
STEP 4
Meanwhile, place Pecans (1 cup) on a baking sheet and toast them for 10 minutes, until crisp and fragrant. Remove from oven and roughly chop them. Set aside.
STEP 5
Add the Kellogg's All-Bran® Original (1 cup) to the Buttermilk (1 cup) and set aside.
STEP 6
Ina medium bowl, whisk together the All-Purpose Flour (1 1/2 cup), Baking Powder (3/4 teaspoon), Baking Soda (1/4 teaspoon), and Kosher Salt (1/2 teaspoon). Set aside.
STEP 7
In a large bowl, combine the Unsalted Butter (1/4 cup) and Brown Sugar (1/4 cup). With an electric mixer, mix until light and fluffy.
STEP 8
Add Egg (2), one at a time and mix until combined, scraping down the bowl with a rubber spatula, occasionally.
STEP 9
Add Molasses (6 tablespoon) and Vanilla Extract (1/2 teaspoon) and continue to beat. Mixture will look curdled.
STEP 10
Add the bran mixture and combine. With the mixer on low speed, add the flour mixture a little at a time until just combined. Don't overmix.
STEP 11
Stir in the Banana (1) and Unsweetened Apple Sauce (1/2 cup). Add the Golden Raisins (1/2 cup), toasted pecans and Sweetened Coconut Flakes (1/2 cup) and fold into the bran mixture.
STEP 12
Spoon into muffin liners about 3/4 full. Sprinkle with a little Wheat Germ (to taste) and Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (to taste), if desired.
STEP 13
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool a bit before enjoying.
