Banana Nut Bran Muffins

I am always trying to find recipes to incorporate bananas into and trying to be a little healthier, I came up with this recipe. I try to have applesauce on hand to use as a substitute for oil, but you can certainly use oil in its place.  

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup oat bran
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon allspice
1 eggs
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup applesauce (vegetable oil can be substituted)
1/2 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts (optional)

In mixer, combine the first eight ingredients. In another bowl, beat the eggs, juice, sugars and applesauce. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in bananas and nuts. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups two-thirds full.

Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Makes approx 12 muffins.
