- For Out-of-Towners
(Mum not Mom – she’s Canadian!)
1 1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup to 1 Cup (4. oz) each of raisins, chopped dates, chopped walnuts
Mix all the above together, making sure that the dates, raisins and nuts are fully coated with flour mixture
1 Tbsp oil
1 cup milk
1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce (I use one individual serving of Mott’s applesauce)
1 1/2 cup of raisin bran
Mix all the above together, let set for 5 minutes (so bran gets a little soggy). I usually mix bowl 2 first so the wet ingredients can soak while I’m mixing bowl.
Once bowl 2 had soaked and bowl 1 is mixed, mix both together get a mini muffin tin, spray with Bakers Joy (it’s an oil and flour spray…..it’s THE BEST). Take a teaspoon to fill each muffin space. Once tin filled, place in. 350 degree preheated oven. Bake for 18 minutes.
You will be able to make 2 1/2 pans of the mini muffins! (most pans make 24 muffins).

Dr. Hodges highly recommends patients attend monthly support group meetings. The meetings are led by Dr. Collins Hodges, both a licensed clinical psychologist and someone who has had bariatric surgery himself. The support groups are offered on the first Monday of every month from 6:30pm – 7:15pm CST via an online GoToMeeting. The meetings are open to the public, and there is no charge to attend.
