Vegan Bran Muffins for Mom

She's taken care of you your entire life. Bathing you, feeding you, bailing you out of sticky situations. The least you can do is make her a batch of Vegan Bran Muffins with her favorite fruit. These muffins are full of good stuff like applesauce and wheat bran and can you can easily add nuts, seeds, or chocolate chips. For the version here we used fresh cherries.

To make these muffins you will need:
1 1/2 cups soy yogurt
1/2 cup safflower oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon vanilla
2/3 cups wheat bran
2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 cups cherries, pitted and chopped

Preheat oven to 325 degrees and fill a muffin pan with liners. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk the dry ingredients together. Add wet ingredients to dry and mix until just combined. Gently mix fruit into batter and fill muffin liners two-thirds of the way. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
