My mother always made this recipe when I was a child. Over the years I have experimented with it trying to making the nutrition count while still keeping the muffins moist. I have mixed in brown and multigrain flours. I have even reduced the sugar by a 1/2 cup. I have enclosed the original recipe.

LOVED IT!! I really enjoyed the texture of the muffins. I find most bran muffins to be very dry but these were very moist. Thanks for the post!
