This is health food. This recipe would probably get more action if cross listed under gluten free. It took a while to find a gluten-free oat bran muffin. If molasass is too much... try honey. I added a little apple sauce to moisten and a little more oatbran for balance. I yeilded 1 dozen muffins. I cooked at 350, as I had something else in the oven at the same time. Hubby ate 3 before they had a chance to cool. I thought they were yummy but I understand Annette1's point and will definitely lower the molassas content and replace with honey next time.
