1 cup bran buds
1 cup boiling water to soak the bran buds

1 ½ cups non-dairy milk, like oat milk
2 ½ cups whole-wheat flour
2 ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • Make flax eggs by whisking together 2 tablespoons flax meal with 6 tablespoons water.
  • In a large bowl, combine the soy milk, oil and sugar. Mix.
  • Add the prepared eggs and mix.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  • Add the bran mixture and mix to just combine. (Don’t overmix or muffins will be tough.)
