Raisin Bran Muffins

1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup unprocessed wheat bran
1/4 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup unpacked light brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk or regular milk
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 12-hole muffin tin with nonstick spray. In a medium bowl, combine flour, wheat bran, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to cream butter with sugar until sugar dissolves. Beat in egg and mix thoroughly. Add 1/3 of bran mixture and 1/3 cup of buttermilk. Mix until just combined. Repeat, alternating with bran mixture and buttermilk. Fold in raisins.

Fill each muffin hole about two-thirds full and place in the middle of the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes, (10 minutes for mini-muffins) or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean.
