This is a very tasty and healthy muffin. Always looking for a healthy snack. The peanut butter with the banana makes it extra special. My husband loved them and he doesn't care for banana bread or muffins. This is a keeper!

Loved these! They are very filling and pretty good for you. I used natural peanut butter - next time I am going to try 1/2 wheat flour & splenda to make them a bit healthier. I put the soaked bran in the food processor, with the PB and banana and other wet ingredients, worked great - nice texture. I also used the suggestion of a sprinkle of mini choc chips on top instead of the topping, and it was perfect. I froze some, and they tasted the same after thawing. FYI They were much better after sitting overnight, I wasn't too thrilled at first, but the next day they were great. I used Kelloggs All Bran.

These were great muffins & I love the amount of fibre that goes in. They rose into a good dome shape. I also followed another review's suggestion & put the milk & bran in the blender. I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon & choc chips - I skipped the topping as well. Thanks for sharing
