This was response for a request for bran muffins using bran, not bran cereal. I have not tried this, but it does sound good

I have to agree that these are a bit dry but that can be fixed. If you use buttermilk plus 1 tsp. of baking powder and 1 tsp. of baking soda you will see a difference. Hope this helps.

These are the driest muffins I have tried yet. I tried the recipe because it doesn't call for cereal but not a keeper. I found the recipe 63584 which also doesn't use cereal to be much better and moister. Tom

Healthy indeed! I used oat bran instead of wheat bran, and omitted the raisins, so my muffins were barely sweet, but even so I loved them! Bran gives it this pleasant grainy texture, and although they were rather dry as veggiegal mentioned, they leave you feeling all healthy :-) Since I scaled the recipe down to 6, I omitted the 1/2 egg as well, as I usually do for muffin recipes. Next time I'll try baking for a shorter time to make them less dry. Otherwise, they're really, really good!
