  • 2 1/2 cups oat bran
  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • 1 cup ground golden flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp fresh orange zest
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 large oranges quartered, peeled and seeded
  • 1 cup sucanat this is dried cane juice and an amazing clean-eating sweetener to use in baking, or use natural brown sugar
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 whole organic eggs
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups golden raisins


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line two 12 cup muffin pans with paper liners.
  • I like my muffins bigger, so I made 20 instead of 24.
  • In a large bowl, combine oat bran, spelt flour, flaxseed, baking powder and sea salt.
  • Set aside.
  • In a blender, combine oranges, zest, sucanat (or brown sugar), buttermilk, oil, eggs and baking soda.
  • Blend well.
  • Pour orange mixture into dry mixture.
  • Mix until just blended.
  • Stir in raisins.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, drop batter evenly into muffin cups.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Cool in pans for 5 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
  • You can grind your own flax using whole flaxseed or buy it already ground.
