This makes 12 regular sized muffins for me, not the six stated in the
recipe.  There are many fatfree muffin recipes in this book.

Total time: 40 minutes.
Time to prepare: 10 minutes.
Cooking time: 30 minutes.

Refrigeration/freezing: refrigerate up to 1 week.  Freeze up to 6 months.

Pumpkin enriches these muffins in two ways, with its familiar sweet flavor
and a bit of beta-carotene.  You can replicate the taste and multiply the
vitamins by using sweet potato instead.

Heat the oven to 500 F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin or sweet potato puree, wheat
bran, egg whites, buttermilk or yogurt, molasses, and sugar.  Stir with a
whisk until smooth.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda,
cinnamon, and ginger.

Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, mixing just enough to moisten, about
30 seconds.  Fold in the raisins.

Fill the cups of a 6-cup nonstick muffin tin two-thirds full Place the tin
in the oven.  Lower the temperature to 400 F.  Bake until the tops are
golden brown and springy to the touch and a knife or toothpick inserted in
the center of a muffin tests clean, about 30 minutes.  Let the tin cool on
a cooling rack for 10 minutes before removing the muffins.  To store, let
the muffins cool completely on the rack.  Seal them inside a plastic bag,
and refrigerate or freeze.
