    Londonsbk's Note:

    I tried this recipe from America Test Kitchen and these were amazing. The test kitcen perferes Kellog's All-Bran Original Cereal in this recipe. Dried cranberries or cherries may be substituted for raisins. Low fat or non fat yogurt may be substituted for whole milk yogurt though the muffins won't be quite as flavorful.

Add melted butter and whisk to combine; add yogurt and whiskto combine.

    3. 3
      Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and gently mix with rubber spatula until batter is combined and evenlymoistened. Do not overmix. Genly fold raisins into batter. Using 1/3 cup measure or ice cream scoop, divide batter evenly among muffin cups, dropping batter to form mounds. Do not level or flatten surfaces of mounds.

      This is totally awesome! I made it when the recipe was first published in Cook's Illustrated (spring 2007) and I've made it several times since. I substitute dried cherries for raisins, and I use Nature's Path "Heritage Flakes" instead of bran flakes. I also find that Greek yogurt tastes best. Anyway, this is always a hit at home and with friends when I make it.

      This is my favorite bran muffin recipe. Very moist and delicious. I like to freeze them individually, then grab one each morning on my way out the door. Pop it in the microwave for a few seconds or let it thaw during my drive to work.
