    1      Cup           All-Purpose Flour
      1/2  Cup           Oat Bran
      1/2  tsp           Baking Soda
      1/2  tsp           Baking Powder
    2      tsp           Cinnamon
      1/2  tsp           Ground Ginger
    1      tsp           Nutmeg
      3/4  Cup           Brown Sugar, Packed
      1/2  Cup           Unsweetened Applesauce
    3                    Egg Whites
    1      tsp           Vanilla
    1      Cup           Canned Pumpkin
      3/4  Cup           Lowfat Granola
      1/2  Cup           Raisins
    1      Cup           Apples -- Chopped
 
       Coat a muffin pan with nonstick spray or line the cups with paper baking
   cups.  Set aside.
       In a medium bowl, wisk the flour, bran, baking soda, baking powder,
   cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
       In a large bowl, mix the sugar, applesauce, egg whites, and vanilla.  Stir
   in the pumpkin.  Add the flour mixture and mix quickly.  Fold in the granola,
   raisins and apples.
       Fill the muffin cups three-quarters full.  Sprinkle a small amount of brown
   sugar and granola onto the top of each muffin, pressing the toppings slightly
   into the batter.  Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center of a
   muffin comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. 
   Remove the muffins from the pan and put them on the rack to finish cooling.
