This was on one of those recipe cards that you get in the mail from time to time. We love the taste of the pumpkin and bran - even DD and she isn't a bran eater!

These were good. I did forget the all purpose flour, because I forgot to write it down (my printer don't work). However I still enjoyed them very much! VERY MUCH! I added 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp vanilla, as well as some raisins and chopped pecans. They were very nice. I am going to save one for my breakfast tomorrow.
Very moist and tasty muffins. For this recipe I added whole eggs and used wheat flour. I also sprinkled pumpkin seeds on top of each muffin. Then using the back of a spoon I pressed the pumpkin seeds down into the batter so they would not roll off while baking. It made for a pretty muffin (see above). Next time I would like to add a bit more Pumpkin Pie Spice or perhaps cinnamon or ginger to kick the flavor up a bit. These would also be great with cranberries. Thank you.
Yummy, nutritious (beta-carotene from the pumpkin and fibre from the oat bran), and low fat... what more could I ask for in a muffin? These muffins were good warm as well as cold in my lunch the next day. The only thing I'd change would be to add some raisins.
