    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is a fantastic muffin that bakes out very high and moist, I have even added a finely chopped large apple into the flour mixture. If you prefer a sweeter muffin then add in more brown sugar. You can use 1-1/3 cup cake and pastry flour instead of all-purpose flour.

      Delicious! Delightful! Yummy! Another fabulous recipe from Kittencal. I substituted wheat germ for wheat bran because I was too lazy to rummage in the back of my pantry for the bran. I put in 2/3 cup mixed light and dark brown sugar because I didn't have enough light brown sugar. I left out the raisins and nuts because my kids like those individually, but not in things. I used two small ripe bananas and didn't bother to measure, so I had more banana, and thus more batter. I just filled all the cups to the very tippy top.

      These were oh so good! I used pecans, molasses, oat bran and 1/2 cup brown sugar and they were plenty enough sweet for me. I got 6 BIG muffins that baked for 25 minutes in my BIG muffin pan. I don't think you'll be disappointed!

      Delicious, healthy muffin! This is probably the best bran muffin recipe I've found. I love that oats are incorporated along with the bran. I used all whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour and added 1 cup of frozen blueberries, and they were fantastic! I omitted the raisins and nuts since I didn't have any on hand. I plan on freezing these and pulling one out for breakfast each morning. Thanks, Kittencal.....your recipes never disappoint! :)
