Raisin Bran Muffins

Raisin Bran Muffins
1 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup uncooked wheat germ
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup turbinado or brown sugar
1 large egg
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup raisins, chopped
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400. Coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine floer, wheat bran, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon; set aside. Using an electric mixer, in a large bowl, cream butter with sugar until sugar is dissolved; add egg and beat thoroughly. Add 1/3 of bran mixture and 1/3 cup buttermilk; mix until just combined. Repeat, alternating, with remaining bran mixture and buttermilk; fold in raisins. Fill each prepared muffin hole about 2/3 full of batter; place in middle of oven. Bake until a toothpick inserted in center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15-20 minutes. Serve warm or cooled.
