I have been looking forward to making these for over a month now. . .finally got around to it!!! SUPER healthy and light bran muffins. However, the flavor was lacking a bit for me. Perhaps it needs a spice of some sort, but I don't know if that would be cinnamon, cardamom, clove. . .not sure with the raspberries. My raspberries were kind of big, so I added a few more than the recipe called for to make sure that each muffin had at least 1. I also cut the recipe in half and it made exactly 12 muffins. Lastly, I threw in a handful of walnuts which worked well. Thanks for posting!!! I have a photo and I will post it when my computer comes back from the shop.
