    These make great LF/LC muffins that have just the hint of sweetness added in from the molasses. I couldn't find natural bran anywhere in our groceries here and so used 1/2 cup wheat bran in place of. Also used more ww flour than listed and cut back on the all-purpose. This made for a dryer muffin than normal and so I should have cut time back on the baking. These muffins don't raise much and so for future reviewers, if you think 1/2 cup of batter is too much for your muffin tins...it probably isn't. I didn't fill mine completely to the top and got 19 muffins. A great repeat muffin daisy. p.s...I should mention I used 1/2 cup Craisins and 1/2 cup raisins. Made for HolidayTag.
