Quick Oat Bran and Banana Muffins

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by GaylaJ

A delicious way to add healthy oat bran to your diet. I like the chopped bananas in these, rather than the usual mashed, as I like running across the small bits of banana. This is a recipe from Bon Appetit that I have changed somewhat to suit my taste.

I love this recipe! These muffins are much more moist than some other bran muffin recipes I have tried. The only changes I made were substituting 1/4 cup applesauce for the oil and half of the flour with whole-wheat flour. They freeze wonderfully, so I will keep a constant supply of these in my freezer . . . I'll just pull one out for each day! Thanks for sharing, GaylaJ.
