This recipe is very flexible. Sometimes, if I have oat bran hiding in my cupboards, I will use that in place of some of the bran. This makes up a large batch that can sit in the fridge for up to a month or bake up and freeze. I have a 6 muffin tin that I will make up fresh muffins in the morning, using my toaster oven. You could use applesauce in place of some of the vegetable oil to lower the calories.
