Maple Pumpkin Bran MUffins 1

Maple Pumpkin Bran Muffins

Serves: 6

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was really nice! My mother and her boyfriend came down to help me get my Christmas tree. We also had a nice lunch out and did a little shopping! It was very nice! Sunday was spent getting ready for this week, studying, chatting with a great new friend and relaxing!! Overall, it was a great weekend! It was much needed for sure!!

Today’s recipe was another one that came out of a craving about 1.5 months ago! haha (yes, I do have recipes on hand forever before I share them!) I had a craving for a bran muffin, but since I can’t eat wheat I went in search of a replacement! The rice bran worked perfectly! Feel free to use regular wheat bran though!

I hope you enjoy! Have a great Monday! :)

Fit Ingredients

  • 1/2 c (60g) oat flour
  • 1/3 c + 1 tbs (50g) Rice Bran (or wheat bran)
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 c (187g) pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 c maple syrup (I used sugar free)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbs coconut oil (or oil of choice), melted


  • Muffin tin



1. Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees.

2. Spray 6 muffin cups with non stick spray.

3. Combine all ingredients.

4. Divide batter evenly among muffin tins.

5. Bake for ~18 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

6. Allow to cool before eating.

These were amazing! I had a huge craving for a bran muffin (which I can’t eat) and this recipe definitely satisfied that craving! The maple syrup in them makes the recipe! They were moist and soft, yet slightly dense like a true bran muffin! Plus they were perfect for an afternoon snack with some greek yogurt! The only thing I would change is that I would add some raisins in next time because raisin bran muffins are the best!
