Honey Bran Muffins

"My mom used to always make bran muffins (boxed mix) and threw a banana or nuts in for a change. This sounds just as easy as a mix, but without the extra preservatives."

    Boy these are wonderful muffins! Loved the addition of the pineapple juice; the flavor is subtle but you can tell it's there, great with the honey and raisins. I made half a batch and got 12 good-sized muffins. Mine stuck to the paper liners a bit so next time I will use foil liners or just grease the muffin pan. Thanks for sharing a keeper!

    These muffins are really great, & although I did allow my other half to share at one of his meetings, I kept 6 of them just for us & the 2nd day I thought they were even better! Really enjoyed the raisins & pineapple juice in these & will happily make them again & I suspect they will keep well in the freezer, too (will have to check that out next time around)! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
