Cinnamon Apple Bran Muffins

Start your Monday off right with these Cinnamon Apple Bran Muffins with Spark Naturals Essential Oil! 

You will need:
•1 cup oat bran 
•1 cup buttermilk, shaken 
•1/4 cup butter, room temperature 
•1/3 cup brown sugar
•2 large eggs, room temperature
•1/4 cup molasses
•1 tsp vanilla extract
•1 cup all-purpose flour
•1/2 cup whole wheat flour
•2-3 drops SN Cinnamon EO
•1 tsp baking powder
•1/2 tsp baking soda
•1/2 tsp salt
•1 cup grated apple
•1/2 cup finely chopped pecans, plus some for the muffin tops (opt)

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease mini muffin (or normal muffin) tin. Mix buttermilk and bran together in a small bowl and set aside. Cream the butter and sugar, then add eggs, vanilla, molasses, and SN Cinnamon EO one at a time. Mix thoroughly. Add the buttermilk and bran and stir to combine. In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until combined. Fold in apples and nuts gently.

Fill muffin tin to the top but not above it with batter and place a whole pecan on top of each muffin, if desired. Bake for 20 minutes; a toothpick inserted in the middle should come out clean. If making normal sized muffins, bake for 28-30 minutes.
