Spicy Bran and Goji Berry Muffins

How to Make Spicy Bran and Goji Berry Muffins Recipe - Goji berries are related to the chile family and resemble very small pale red chilies. Usually sold dried, goji berries have a sweet, tangy flavor and are very high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. With goji berries, walnuts for omega-3 oils and a blend of spices, these are the ultimate antioxidant high-fiber snack.



1 cup (150 g) self-rising flour
1 teaspoon (5 ml) ground mixed spice
1 teaspoon (5 ml) baking soda
1/2 cup (115 ml) firmly packed soft brown sugar
1 2/3 cups (100 g) unprocessed wheat bran
1/2 cup (60 g) goji berries or currants
1/2 cup (60 g) chopped walnuts
1 egg
1 1/4 cups (300 ml) buttermilk
1/3 cup (75 ml) canola oil
2 teaspoons (10 ml) canola oil, for greasing

1 Sift the flour, mixed spice and baking soda into a mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar, bran, goji berries and walnuts. Put the egg, buttermilk and oil in a separate bowl and whisk until combined.

2 Stir the egg mixture into the dry ingredients, but do not overmix; it should remain lumpy. Cover the bowl and leave in the refrigerator overnight.

3 Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease a 12-hole standard muffin pan.

4 Spoon the batter into the prepared pan, filling the cups two-thirds full. Bake for 20–25 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Let the muffins cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container for two days, or in the freezer for up to two months.
