Peanut Butter and Maple Syrup Oat Bran Muffins

2 cups Cracklin’ Oat Bran

1 cup buttermilk

¼ cup olive oil

1 egg

1/3 cup brown sugar

½ cup pure maple syrup

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon cinnamon

½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

2 heaping tablespoons chunky peanut butter

1 cup granola mix (I used one with sunflower and pumpkin seeds, dried fruit of cranberries, mango, pineapple, and raisins, chopped nuts, and small dried oat chunks)

Directions:  Soak Cracklin’ Oat Bran in 1 cup buttermilk and set aside for 10 minutes. Meanwhile in a separate bowl, add all dry ingredients including brown sugar and sift thoroughly with a whisk. Now add granola mix, oil, vanilla, maple syrup, peanut butter, and egg to buttermilk and bran mix and combine thoroughly with a fork. Add dry ingredients as well now and stir until mixed. Drop into a greased muffin tin or with cupcake holders. Fill each cup 2/3 full. Bake on 375 for 15 to 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean. Makes a dozen.
