This is a recipe that I got from my friend, Gail. These are so light and fluffy. Very moist and definitely a keeper. I was wondering what they would taste like with a flavoured yogurt. Inquiry minds want to know......

Without a doubt these are the fluffiest bran muffins that I have ever made or seen anywhere for that matter. I made the full amount and making 12 regular sized muffins and 6 double sized. The smaller ones baked in 15 mins and the double's were ready at 17 mins. I used 3/4 cup of Splenda Brown and cut the oil to 3/4 cup and used fat free Greek yogurt with no problems at all. Also added 1 cup of big flame raisins. So Good! this recipe is certainly a keeper
