I got this recipe from my mom in law. I am not a big fan of bran muffins, but these are something different. Crunchy, moist, and yummy!

Excellent recipe. These are so moist and delicious. I left out the seseme and sunflower seeds, because I didnt have them, but I am sure they would be great with them too! I did use 1cup buttermilk and 1cup milk, and I also used the wheat germ...Love them!

These are very moist and delicious. I think the added seeds made it very special-they gave it the muffin a wonderful nutty flavor. They were indeed extremely moist and a tad on the oily side. I used dried apricots instead of raisins because that's what I had on hand and it worked well, I thought. I included the optional wheat germ and used whole wheat flour. They're easy to make and I highly recommend you try them!

Even *I* like these bran muffins!...But then again, bran muffins are my favorite, so its not really that surprising! These are a good simple recipe for bran muffins- I like the addition of sunflower and sesame seeds. The sesame impart a lovely sesame flavor. The flavor is good and they are just sweet enough. The one problem I had is that the batter was a bit wet, and, as a result, the muffins turned out a bit...um...loose grained? They don't really hold together as well nor are they as puffy as other bran muffin recipes I've enjoyed. I think the quanity of milk could probably be reduced or the amount of oil- I feel that they're a tad oilier than they really need to be. I made a half recipe since I only have 2 6-cup muffin tins and I didn't really want to make 2 batches. I did follow the suggestion of the recipe and used 3/4 cup bran, 1/4 cup wheat germ- maybe this had something to be with the cohesion problem? Anyhow, a good muffin recipe with very nice flavor, but I do think they need a little less liquid.
