    I am hoping to be able to bake these muffins, the recipe was on the green Quakerbox, as a surprise for my mom. She currently buys muffins that tast exactly like these: she used to make them for the family in the 70's. I think it's about time I return the favour!! icon_lol.gif Thanks!

    These are posted:Bran Muffins - Quaker in case you want to save it. I've made these a few times and LOVE it, too.

    These were the muffins my Mom always had me bake. She would tell me that mine tasted better then hers (think she was just trying to encourage my love of baking) icon_biggrin.gif icon_wink.gif icon_biggrin.gif

    Thank you 100 times for the Green Box Quaker Bran Muffin recipe.

    I am from the States and upon my first visit to Canada I bought the green box, made the bran muffins and was in 7th heaven. I misplaced the recipe
    and was excited when I found your post. I cannot get the green box in the US but I will use what we have for bran and make these delightful gems.
