Jen's Low Fat High Fiber Bran Muffins

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by ladypit

I have gone through pretty much all the bran muffin recipes on the zaar (and there are a lot!) and I could not find one like mine. We really enjoyed these, and I think if I don't write it down I'll forget all the substitutions I made! This makes 2 dozen regular or a lot of mini! (I made 1 dozen regular and 2 dozen mini.)

Super Great! I modified a bit (I just have to with everything). I omitted the oil and Splenda and added a total of 1 cup unsweetend applesauce. I added 1 tsp of cinn and 1 tsp of vanilla and one cup of craisins. I actually added everything at once in a big bowl, after waiting for the bran to absorb the water, and mixed until well combined. I baked them for 15 mins for the big, as you stated, and 10 for the minis. Everything else I followed the recipe. Thank you for a great recipe!
