Good, simple recipe. I made mini muffins with walnuts. I used one less Tbsp of oil and added 2 very ripe bananas to the mix. I also sprinkled with raw sugar and oats as another person suggested...and it gave it a nice little punch. Yummy and moist.

I love this recipe. I was going to make the one on the back of the box, but yours looked so much tastier. The only change I made was instead of vanilla, I used 1 Tbsp. Molasses. I like the depth it gives to bran muffins. If you've never tried oat bran, get your feet wet with this recipe...it's yummy. Thank you for posting!

These are excellent, moist and flavorful. Perfect made in mini-muffin tins for small children! I ran out of oat bran and substituted crushed oat cereal for half of the bran, and that turned out just as well. These freeze nicely, too. Thanks for the great kid-friendly recipe.

These are really good! I replaced the oil with light sour cream and they were still moist and not crumbly at all. I topped with raw sugar and rolled oats before baking for a light crunch.

I made several adaptations to accommodate my diet, but otherwise a great recipe. I used Sugar Twin brown sugar and chopped apples instead of raisins. I also used 2 egg whites in place of 1 whole egg, reduced the vegetable oil to 2 T, and bumped up the applesauce to about 1 1/4 cups. I got about 2 1/2 dozen muffins. The result was a moist, tasty treat!

I made these with ww pastry flour. That may be the reason they were a tidge dry. I remedied that by serving them with low fat cream cheese. The flavor is great. I will make these again. I will try 1/2 all purpose and 1/2 ww pastry flour. I will let you all know the results!

Very flavorful muffins! They certainly don't taste "good for you."

If you don't feel like making individual muffins, I found that this recipe can be made into a 9x3 loaf. Just grease the loaf pan before adding the batter, sprinkle with some cinnamon sugar before baking, and bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes. Let cool in pan on wire rack for about 10 minutes, then remove bread from pan & cool completely on wire rack.
