I love this recipe. I have made it 3 times now with different variations: apple cinnamon, pumpkin, and banana nut chocolate chip is now in the oven. I use whole wheat flour and applesauce and add a splash of vanilla. I cook mine at a lesser temperature for about 15 minutes and they are perfect.
YUM! YUM! YUM! These are the best bran muffins I've ever had; even my husband loves them. I've made both the pumpkin and the apple versions, and both are delish! For the apple, I used 1/2 c chopped apple (we used a sweet variety) + 1/2 c unsweetned applesauce. I also used 1.5 tsp apple pie spice vs just the 1 tsp as called for (same case for the pumpkin pie spice in the orig recipe-- I used 1.5 tp v just 1 tsp). I plan on making a banana-blueberry version next, and maybe a carrot cake or orange one. Btw, someone said these muffins were too heavy? Well, they are bran muffins, not cupcakes. lol I found these muffins to be deliciously hearty, healthy, and moist!
wow - not sure what i did wrong, but these were pretty awful. Dry, burnt, and no rise. I followed the instructions exactly, even though I was a little concerned about baking them at 425 when all my other muffin recipes call for 400 degrees. Should have gone with my intuition. Because of all the other positive reviews, I can only assume that there was something not right in my ingredients or the baking temp. Really wanted to like these. :-(
Delicious, and healthy (but they don't taste "healthy"). I made with 3/4 c. mashed banana instead of pumpkin/spice, and also added 3/4 c. mini choc. chips (because they were for my kids). SO much better than the sweet cakey store-bought muffins. The kids and I both loved them!
I've made this several time and forgot to rate it and I don't know why because it is so good. I use ground oatmeal as I have that instead of oat bran. The flour is 1/2 white and 1/2 white. I added 2 Tlb. ground flax seed, some dried cranberry and chopped nut. So nice to have a healthy muffin. This is a definate addition to the muffin rotation.
10 stars! A wonderful healthy option for a muffin. I increased the spice as per other rewiewers recomendations. Very nice warm with a cup of tea
Yummy. My only change was to switch out half the oil with applesauce. Delish!!
I tried regular brown sugar and the brown sugar splenda mix, and the splenda mix made for WAY BETTER muffins. I believe it's because the sugar substitute is 200 times sweeter than regular brown sugar. I used whole eggs instead of egg whites. They were very moist and tasty. People loved them. Thanks for the recipe! Yum Yum!!
Amazing! And so healthy! BF has actually requested these several times now. Thanks!
These were absolutely a fantastic muffin. They were soooooo moist and yummy. A very healthy muffin. Thanks for posting this recipe.
