    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I have made many bran muffins over my years of baking this one has become my all-time favorite, and when you make these you will see why! ---throw in some fresh blueberries in place of the raisins if desired, I have even made these using Raisin Bran cereal and also using wheat bran --- you will love these muffins!

      I love these muffins. They freeze well and are so easy on busy mornings - just pop one in the microwave and go. I've tried them with blueberries, but I like them best with a few chocolate chips and walnuts. Thanks for another great recipe.

      These muffins are AWESOME! I have always had homemade bran muffins served to me that were dry and blah and, because of that, I have shyed away from trying to make them myself. However, these are totally moist and full of flavor! I used half applesauce and half oil, used 3/4 c. brown sugar, omitted the raisins (family preference), used vanilla extract, used 1 c. all-purpose flour, and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Oh, I also put 1 Tablespoon of lemon juice into 1 c. milk, because I didn't have any buttermilk. I got 15 muffins (I didn't fill some of the cups as much as I probably could have), and they were baked perfectly in 18 minutes for me. This recipe is a keeper. Thank you, Kittencal!

      What an amazing recipe! I made it almost exactly as written except I left out the raisins (I don't like them) and I added a little nutmeg and ginger with the cinnamon. To die for! So moist and soft and sweet. Thank you once again for an awesome recipe!
