Banana Bran Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Feisty

After trying a lot of disappointing bran muffins, I came up with this one. The spices give a little more punch, while the raisins and nuts add iron and additional fiber. It's a great way to use up ripe bananas.

This is a fantastic recipe! We didn't care much for the idea of raisins in instead i added dried apricots and dates. I also make my own brown sugar.Then, in addition to the spices I added 1/2 a teaspoon of vanilla extract. These muffins were very moist and not too sweet...but not bland either.
