Gingerbread Bran Muffins

These gingerbread bran muffins make a festive addition to your brunch spread during the holiday season. Make these gluten-free by using oat bran and your favorite gluten-free flour blend (I like Bob's Red Mill All-Purpose Baking Flour).

  4. Stir melted coconut oil and molasses into bran-and-milk mixture. Add dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fold in raisins.
