These are my mom's bran muffins. She always stores them in an ice cream pail with a lid on in the fridge. You can make as many or as little as you want in one batch.

These are wonderful muffins! Made as directed but put cupcake liners in tins. Made 12 perfect shiny muffins with pointy cracked tops. Mmmmm tasty! I resisted adding vanilla & cinnamon - glad I did b/c these are perfect as are. I don't think I have enough leftover for another 12 muffins - will mix up another batch & add it all together to store in tupperware jug in the fridge. Thank you for a great bran muffin recipe KennKonn! edit - made again w/o the liners - slid right out of tins w/o sticking! I'll skip liners in the future - not needed & I nibbled abit too much paper when peeling off all the too-good-to-waste muffin LOL!

These were made for me and now I will be shopping for bran tomorrow to make my own. I'm not usually a big fan of bran but this was sweet and moist. Will be perfect for just a couple in the mornings with leftovers in the fridge for other mornings.
