Carrot Bran Muffins Recipe

With their golden brown tops, pretty flecks of orange and bursts of raisin sweetness, these bran muffins are anything but ordinary! Our Test Kitchen staff fine-tuned the recipe to make them extra moist and tender.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup wheat bran

  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1-1/2 cups grated carrots
  • 1 cup raisins


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Combine the eggs, buttermilk, oil and molasses; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in carrots and raisins.
  • 2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
