  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Fill muffin tins with paper muffin liners (these work the best in this recipe - I do not recommend making these muffins without using paper liners)
  • Add 1 tsp vinegar to milk and set aside
  • In a large bowl, cream butter with sugar, then stir in oil. Add molasses.
  • in a separate medium bowl, mix flours, bran, wheat germ, baking powder and chia seeds together. Add to butter mixture and mix well. You can use an electric mixer for this part.
  • Add baking soda to milk and stir. Add to mixture.
  • Stir in walnuts.
  • Fold in beaten eggs. Stir only until combined
  • Fill paper filled muffin liners to top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until tester or toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool for 5 mins then transfer to cooling rack. Cool for 5 more minutes and serve.


Note: I find wheat bran at Co op or Superstore in Calgary
