Ginger Bread Wheat Bran Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 deg.

Makes 12 muffins.

1 1/4 c. white flour
1 c. wheat bran
1/4 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. ground ginger
1/2 t. cloves
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt

1 c. 1% milk
1/4 c. molasses
1/4 c. unsweetened apple sauce
(Optional: use 1/4 c. oil in place of apple sauce - Affects WW points value.)
1/2 c. egg substitute (or 2 egg whites)

1 1/2 t. sugar

Mix dry ingredients together. Mix wet ingredients together and add to dry ingredients. Mix just until moist. Grease muffin tin. (Paper cups do not work - muffins stick to paper because there is no oil in these.) Fill 2/3 full (about 1/3 cup). Sprinkle top of each muffin with 1/8 tsp. sugar. Bake at 400 deg. for 20-22 minutes.
