Pumpkin-bran muffins

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Flour;
½ cup Bran;
1 tablespoon Sugar;
2 teaspoons Baking powder
½ teaspoon Baking soda
½ teaspoon Ground cinnamon;
2 tablespoons Vegetable oil
½ cup Pumpkin; canned or cooked
1 Egg;
¾ cup Orange juice;
⅓ cup Raisins;
1 tablespoon Wheat germ;

Combine all the ingredients, except the wheat germ, in a mixing bowl.
