I adapted this recipe for a diabetic friend. I substituted 1 cup of Splenda (for Baking) for the sugar and substituted unsweetened applesauce for the honey. You can use blueberries, prunes, fig, or raisins as well as dates.


2 1/2 cups All purpose flour
2 teaspoons Baking soda
1 teaspoon Salt
2 cups All bran
3/4 cup Dates; chopped
1 cup Water; boiling
1/2 cup Butter; - or margarine
1 cup Splenda for Baking
1/2 cup Apple sauce; unsweetened
2 large Eggs
2 cups Buttermilk

Original recipe makes 12



In a small bowl sift together dry ingredients .( flour salt and baking soda)

In another bowl mix all bran and fruit with boiling water. Set aside.Using an electric beater, cream

together , butter, splenda and apple sauce , beat in eggs one at a time. Alternately add flour

mixture and buttermilk.(3 additions each). Beat in soaked bran and fruit mixture.

Divide mixture among prepared muffin tins. Bake in preheated 375 oven for 20 minutet or until

Loved the muffins. I am always looking for a healthy breakfast on the go. I used fresh figs instead of the dates and granulated splenda and they were excellent.

I made this with granulated splenda (not splenda for baking) and they were still excellent! Look even better than the photo, as they raised up well and look appetizing. I will definately make this again. Thanks

The Splenda used in this recipe was probably "Splenda for Baking" which contains some sugar but works better in baked goods.
