Mmmm, these muffins have a soft and moist texture! I ended up omitting the lemon zest, using bran cereal instead of natural bran, apple sauce instead of oil (to cut down on fat), and added a couple tablespoons of wheat germ and ground flax seed (for extra nutrients). They still turned out great! Next time I make them I will cut back on the molasses/sugar since they were uber-sweet. Thanks for the recipe!

For a low fat muffin this was really great. Because of the reduced fat, they weren't overly moist but very light. I also got 6 nice sized muffins out of it instead of 12. Next time I make them I'm going to sweeten my blueberries ahead of time. Mine were a bit on the tart side.
