Cross Country Bran Muffins

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Cadylynn

These muffins are a great high energy/fiber food that I loved to eat while in training for marathons/triathlons. They are definitely not gourmet but they taste good, are very low in fat and are a great diet food!

Top Review by Keolani

Well, there don't seem to be any marathons in my future but I hate coming in from a jog and feeling like I undid it for breakfast. I like to wait until at least lunch before I gain all the calories I just burned. These were good and I got to feel self rightous for eating them. Even better, the kids didn't like them so I didn't have to share. I might fool around with some spices and I think they would be good with some fruit butter (I'm thinking pumpkin butter for this time of year.)
