This was the first time I’d ever tried anything with sunflower seed butter. A great option for those nut free places! For the bran flakes, I used All Bran flakes, found with the cereals in the supermarket.

Sunbutter muffins2 1/2 cups bran flakes
1 1/4 cups milk
1 large egg
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2 cup sunflower seed butter (could sub peanut butter or almond butter)
1 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt

Preheat oven to 400F. Line a 12 cup muffin pan with liners.

In a large bowl, mix the bran with the milk and let sit for five minutes. Then mix in the egg, applesauce, and seed/nut butter.

In a separate bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together. Mix the dry ingredients in to the wet until just combined. Spoon in to muffin pans. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
