Low Fat Sweet Potato Muffins

1 1/2 cups bran cereal
1 cup milk
1 egg
1 cup cooked sweet potatoes
1/2 cup honey
3 tbsp. lemon juice
Grated rind from 2 large oranges
3/4 cup raisins, soaked and well drained
1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda

In a large bowl, pour milk onto cereal and let stand.  Mash enough sweet potato with lemon juice to measure 1 cup.

Add potato to the milk and cereal, along with a beaten egg, honey, orange rind and raisins.  Mix well.

In a smaller bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking powder and soda.

Mix together with the wet ingredients and immediately divide into a greased muffin pan for 12.  Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees F for approximately 25 minutes.  Let stand for 8 - 10 minutes before removing from pan.

  2. Hmm... I love the idea with the honey! Now i've been avoiding eating rice as it contains too much sugar, I replace it with potatoes, and this recipe is a great one for my snacks,hehe
