These are really easy to make, and the cinnamon/sugar topping adds a nice touch of flavor. I make extras and freeze them in a tupperware container. Then I can just pop one in the microwave for my daughter's breakfast.

I just tried your muffins tonight. They were very good plain and also with butter. Simple and quick to make. I wii definitely make again. Thank you very much.

These were very good! I skipped the cinnamon and sugar on top since I was making them for breakfasts. They weren't "the best muffins ever!" but they did taste much more appropriate for breakfast without it :) I used 1 tbsp oil, 2 tbsp water and 2 tsp baking powder in place of the egg and a combination of 1 cup wheat flour, 1/2 cup white flour. I will definitely make these again with any leftover raisin bran I have. Thanks!
