Last fall some nurse colleagues and I took a professional-development course after work. To tide us over until dinner, we took turns bringing muffins to share. Here's an adaptation of the ones I liked best.

MethodIn bowl, mix bran with 1/2 cup (125 mL) boiling water; let cool.
In large bowl, whisk together flour, oats, wheat germ, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, whisk together buttermilk, sugar, oil and egg; pour over dry ingredients along with bran mixture. Sprinkle with apricots; stir just until combined but still lumpy.
Spoon into greased or paper-lined muffin cups. Bake in centre of 375°F (190°C) oven until tops are firm to the touch, 18 to 20 minutes.
