This is my spinoff from JellyBeans Low Fat Full Taste Muffins. I didn't have zucchini so I used apple, and had a craving for bran and this recipe was born!

Delightfully moist and light with a few minor changes: I used raisin bran (it's what I had on hand), crushing the flakes, and added about a tablespoon of lemon juice to the bananas (helps with keeping the muffins lighter colored and lighter textured). I also chopped instead of grated the apple. We ended up with about 18 small to medium size muffins.

Very moist muffins despite having no butter or oil. I also added some blueberries. Easy to make healthy muffins.

What brilliant muffins - so easy to do !! They will be breakfast for DD for the coming week - I even did a heart shaped one for her for Valentine's !!!! I used sultana bran so mine have got a few sultanas throughout them . They are a fabulous success.
