Very yummy! These muffins were moist and very tasty. I will be making these again in the near future.

My family was very disappointed in these. They were very, very bland; and I had followed the recipe exactly, using fresh sweet cherries. I think a dash or 1/4t of salt would help, and a bit more sugar, for those who like a sweeter muffin. (I ended up putting butter and honey on these, but one of my kids, who usually devours muffins, still didn't want them). I wonder, too, if the oat bran is a bit much; they didn't rise very well, even though I was careful not to overstir. Still, they were healthy, and so I will freeze the rest to consume myself in time.

Delicious! However, I realized I was out of oat bran at the last minute, so I substituted with another cup of oatmeal. (I'll definitely try them again with the oat bran.) Loads of flavour & great texture!
