Thank you for this great recipe. I added some walnuts to the recipe, and left the dates out of the batter until I spooned it into the muffin tins. Then I put a date in the center of each muffin and they turned out beautifully!!

I used 1/2 the amount of sugar and they were just right.

I made these for a group of friends going on a ski trip and due to allergies had to substitute the milk for soy milk, and not use the cinnamon. Still came out great!! <br/><br/>I also didn't want to use so much oil so I cut it with apple sauce and they came out great. <br/><br/>Would be awesome w/ walnuts!

Made for Holiday Tag. These are a treat for me as I really liked the texture ,I had to add a handful of chocolate chips to the mix to make my son happy but I felt it was a small price to pay for getting him to eat a healthy snack.

These muffins are very good and light, for a bran muffin anyways. I can't stand how some bran muffins are like heavy rocks. I used half dates and half sultanas. I also threw in some well ground flax with the bran. This added a slightly nutty flavor. I will make these again, I think as a loaf next time. I bet this would be great made with dried cranberries too! Made and Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe Tag - Thanks! :)

So often bran muffins are rather heavy, but not these! They're light with a wonderful flavour (I purchased unprocessed bran in Bulk Barn). I made a mistake in the ingredients and used 2 tsp of baking powder instead of baking soda. The muffins were still delicious. The recipe was very simple, well written and quick to make. Perfect for busy lives. I also got 19 muffins from this recipe. Made for PAC Fall '08.

These are wonderful Kiwi. So moist and flavorful if you're a date lover. I can raisins being used for this also in replacement of or in addition too. For future reviewers in the states, I used Bob's Red Mill Unprocesssed Wheat Bran for what Kiwi calls the unprocessed natural bran. I"m sure it's one and the same if not comparable. I got 19 good sized muffins out of the mix. You could make them smaller as I filled my muffin cups a good 3/4's full. Thanks so much for a keeper recipe Kiwi.! Made for PRMR.~
