Bran Muffins

One of my favorite songs espouses the values of "a low flush toilet and a high fiber diet". I've got the fiber part covered with these delicious bran muffins. I found the recipe in my hippie cookbook "Uprisings", with recipes from co-op bakeries from around the country. The cookbook has proven to be a real thrift store gem! Here goes:

preheat oven to 400.

mix together til thoroughly blended:

2 eggs
1/2 c. light oil
3 T molasses
6 T honey
3 cups water

mix separately:

4 c. bran
2.5 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. milk powder
1.5 T baking powder
salt to taste
1 c. currants (or raisins)

The trick to muffins is to stir as little as possible, and then immediately put them in the muffin tins and bake for 25 minutes. They are so moist and tasty--I was really surprised!
