Cooking Procedures :

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Prepare 2 greased standard 12-muffin pans or line with paper cups.
  2. In a large bowl, combine wheat bran and water and let stand for 15 minutes.
  3. In another bowl, combine and whisk together whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  4. Add honey, molasses, oil, brown sugar and orange zest into the bran mixture. Whisk in eggs and stir in raisins and walnuts.
  5. Add the flour mixture and fold just until the dry ingredients are moistened. The batter will be thick but soupy.

  7. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before removing from the pans. If not serving hot, let cool on a rack. 8. Makes 24 muffins.
