I have been looking for a good bran muffin recipe that didn't start with a bran breakfast cereal and was delighted to find this. I made 6 muffins and couldn't be happier with the results. They are very light and rise beautifully for a moist and tender muffin. I used Splenda in mine and skipped the molasses to cut the sugars but added about 3/4 tsp of cocoa powder to supply the color that the molasses would have added and lightened up on the salt. Walnuts were added but no flax seed. The muffins were perfectly baked at 15 mins. Thanks for posting, I have this safely saved :D.
