Directions:

  1. Place the flour, wheat bran, oat bran, baking soda, and cinnamon in a large bowl, and stir to mix well. Add the apple butter, buttermilk, egg whites, and oil, and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Fold in the raisins.
  2. Coat the bottoms only of muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray, and fill three-fourths full with the batter. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes, or just until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Be careful not to overbake.
  3. Remove the muffin tins from the oven, and allow to sit for 5 minutes before removing the muffins. Serve warm or at room temperature, refrigerating any leftovers not eaten within 24 hours.
