 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            All-purpose or unbleached
                         White flour
    1       c            Oat bran
    1       t            Baking powder
    1       t            Baking soda
      1/2   ts           Ground cinnamon (I used 1
            ts           -I plan to increase more)
      1/4   ts           Ground ginger (I used 1/2
            ts           )
      1/8   ts           Salt (I omitted-usual for
                         Me)
    1       lg           Egg white (I omitted-dumb
                         Question but what purpose
                         Does it serve?)
    1       c            Buttermilk (I used 1%-is
                         There a real difference?)
      1/4   c            Packed light brown sugar
    1       lg           Ripe banana, mashed (I used
    2                    Medium)
    2       tb           Canola or safflower oil (I
                         Used corn oil-Mazola)
    1       tb           Mild honey, such as clover
                         (I omitted)
      1/2   ts           Grated orange zest (I
                         Omitted-what is it?)
 
   Preheat the oven to 400. Coat 12 standard muffin tin
   cups with nonstick spray (I use large paper muffin
   cups). In a medium bowl, combine the flour, oat bran,
   baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt.
   Mix well. Add the egg white, buttermilk, sugar,
   banana, oil, honey and orange zest. Stir just until
   the dry ingredients are moistened; do not overmix.
   Didvide the batter evenly among the muffin cups. Bake
   on the center oven rack for 14 to 17 minutes, or until
   the tops are light brown. Loosen the muffins by
   rapping the pan sharply against the edge of the
   counter. Remove them immediately to a wire rack. Cool
   for 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
   
   Per muffin: 118 calories, 3.1 g. total fat (24% of
   calories),0.4 g. saturated fat, 1mg. cholesterol.
   (With my revisions, each muffin has 122 calories, 2.7
   g. total fat (20% of calories).
