    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    The first time I had these I was 9 and staying at someone's house. When the lady said she was making Bran Muffins for breakfast I was pretty sure I was going to have a miserable meal. Boy was I wrong!! These are fantastic! I usually cut back on the sugar some as they are a bit on the sweet side if made according to the recipe. The batter keeps very well in the refrigerator, for a week or so, so you can bake fresh each morning as many muffins as you need. If you are watching your fat intake, try my Low Fat (But Tasty!) Buttermilk Apple Bran Muffins Ww Friendly.

      This is very similar to the recipe I use--love it! I reduce the sugar to 2/3 cup, use all whole wheat flour (adding 1 1/2 tsp bkg powder and 1/4 cup milk or some yogurt to make up for it) and add some cinnamon when I make them. I also soak the bran in the buttermilk for 10 minutes before mixing in the rest.

      I've made these as written and they are great (note that they make a bigger batch than many recipes) but I now make a few alterations to up the "healthy factor". I use 3/4 C packed brown sugar, whole wheat pastry flour and applesauce in place of the oil. I also measure a little generously with the molasses (black strap) because I love it and it's great iron. Thanks so much for sharing this! My kids enjoy it also.

      These are delicious!! I'm not much into healthy, so I used all of the sugar, halved the recipe and added about 1/2 cup raisins. I did the math in my head and forgot and put 2 tablespoons of molasses in. The batter was a bit runny and I had to bake about 3 extra minutes. In spite of this error, they rose beautifully and were super. Very easy to put together and clean up after. Marg, thanks for sharing your recipe! Great story to go along with it!!
