Yum delish, made these today, omitted the raisin cause I don't like them but added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts, used the buttermilk and margarine and only 1/4 cup of brown sugar, followed all other ingredients and directions as noted, I really enjoyed them but didn't think my hubby would like them b/c he likes the sweet stuff (that's why he married me hahaha) but he really liked them and had two, not that these weren't sweet enough but I think someone with a sweet tooth may want to add the full1/3rd cup....will definitely be making these again.
Great muffins. I don't normally like bran muffins but these are moist and flavorful. Any variety of dried fruit works well with this recipe. I recommend plumping the dried fruit in hot water for 15 mins before adding to the mixture. It really makes the fruit come back to life and adds extra moisture.
Very good, I am not a fan of raisins so i substituted for figs and used 6 grains organic flour and added pumpkin seeds and flax seeds for a little crunch...still turned out moist and delicious!
to start out i am obsessed with bran muffins and have never found a satisfying recipe until now. when i took these muffins out and they were not only perfectly pretty but tasted amazing as well, i had to post a review of bliss! i'm in love!
Fantastic! I've used this recipe on a couple of occasions, but with these substitutions: *instead of cereal, 1.5 cups miller's bran, combined with .5 cups boiling water, stirred, and let sat for 10 minutes. Also add .5 tsp salt and an additional .33 cups brown sugar. *instead of egg, half a banana, mashed, and 2 Tbsp. Veg Oil. I've found setting the temp to 390 and baking for ~22 mins keeps the center from being too gooey. (I also don't like orange zest, and these work great without it if you don't like that taste.)
The recipe worked beautifully, but this muffin really did not suit my tastes or my kids'. They wouldn't eat them even though they like the other carrot muffins and bran muffins that I make for them.
These were awesome! Made just a couple of changes - egg beaters for the egg, and I didn't have any buttermilk so I used plain yogurt with a splash of OJ. They turned out perfectly! Much better the second day!!!
These are AMAZING! I used a little less butter than it called for and put the bran in a food processor to grind it up more finely, but they came out flawless and moist!
Having a hard time writing my review.These are GREAT!!! Thanks for sharing. Sage/Rita
OMG these are amazing!! I know it looks like a lot of ingredients, but they come together rather quickly, and are very tasty and healthful. The first time, I used 1/4 c brown sugar, and people were okay about them. The next time, I upped it to 1/3, and that made a difference. I want to try it with craisins next time!
