Really good muffins! I added an extra quarter cup of brown sugar after another review that said not quite sweet enough. Used lime rind - had no lemons. Used vanilla yogurt as another had done - didn't have buttermilk. Added a tsp of vanilla. And not quite enough blueberries, so I chopped a few cherries and threw them in. Such a forgiving recipe!!! Thank you. Finally I've found a healthy recipe that is moist and flavorful and fun to eat. Hadn't been having a lot of luck.

Outstanding! Very moist with the perfect amount of sweetness! When making bran muffins, I usually put butter and jam. These were so good that they did not need anything extra!

I had a hard time deciding which recipe to try, I went with this one because of the very small amount of oil it called for... That being said, I incorporated quite a few ideas into this one recipe. I substituted vanilla nonfat yogurt for the buttermilk, I used applesauce in place of the oil (only 3 tsp.), and I used orange rind in place of the lemon because of a previous comment. These muffins turned out fantastic, even with all of my changes! I love their healthy flavor and the fact that I can eat them guilt-free. Thanks so much!
