If you have any reservations about trying a whole bran type muffin, you should try these! LIght on the inside and just a little crisp on the outside. We used dried cranberries and sliced almonds in ours, but you could really be creative and pick your favorites. I may add some flax seed next time just for kicks! Thank you for sharing!

It's nice when something so healthy tastes so good! I love any baked goods made with buttermilk - they're so tender, and I love the nutty taste of wheat germ. These are versatile, too; you can add all sort of little extras to the batter. I did make drastically less of this recipe than listed; there are only two of us and I'm not really a fan of long-term freezing.
