    Chef #508256's Note:

    This is a new recipe I just tried and I like it but I like wholesome muffins! It's really simple and bakes quickly. The wheat bran can be substituted with any highfiber bran cereal (as long as you grind it up in a food processor!)

      These were yummy! I used a scant 1/2 teaspoon of liquid stevia for the sweetener and apple cider vinegar for the lemon juice. Wonderful hearty flavor. The texture was a little coarser, but then they ARE bran, and I think bran muffins are maybe supposed to be. I think I'll add a little canola or walnut oil next time to make them a touch lighter in texture. But really, they're pretty darn good as is! And they're so nutritious--they're whole grain, have Omega-3s from the flax, fat free, and nearly sugar free--you can make these all the time and feel great serving them to the family. I plan to. Oh, and I should mention that they were devoured by the small crowd, too: ages 4, 6, and 8. Terrific with warm apple butter. Thanks!!

      Like the previous rating, I also changed the recipe. I used sugar (1 cup) which was plenty sweet enough (I would cut it down next time). I also used 1 Tablespoon of molasses. I like the taste. I added about 1 1/2 cups of raisins. My muffins didn't rise as full as I would have liked, possibly because of old baking soda or powder (I do not bake much). The taste was really good though and almost chewy. I would definately make these again.

      I'm honored to be the 1st one to review this-they were great! I actually used less Splenda than required-about 5 tbsp total & they were really sweet enough w/ the honey as well. I used about 1 1/2 tsp cinn & actually forgot the applesauce!! But they still worked out fine. I used 8 oz milk instead of trying to mess with an extra ounce-also no problem. I loved the oat topping & they are so full of grains & so guilt free that I'm sure I'll be making them again! Thank u very much for sharing.
