I altered this recipe by mixing in dried cranberries and nuts in with the batter. Instead of shortening, I used applesauce to make these muffins a little more healthier (i'm all about that). Also, I substituted 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup all purpose flour instead of a whole cup of all purpose flour. As suggested by other users, I decreased the salt to 1/4 tsp and added a tsp of vanilla. Also, I sprinkled some oats and cinnamon sugar on the tops of the muffins while they were baking to give them a little extra flavor and look. In the end, these bran muffins came out delicious and full of flavor! Read More

Nice and moist but not very sweet. I think they were a bit too salty too. Read More

Five star because husband LOVED them. I wasn't too thrilled. It was very salty next time I might cut the salt in 1/2. For those who don't want whole flakes in their muffins try soaking the flakes in the milk mixture for 10-15 minutes. I did that and there was no sign of the flakes Read More

Not fond of raisins so I used just plain bran flakes. They turned out great. The family loved them but my husband requested that I crush the flakes first. He didn't really like finding whole flakes in his muffins. This is my new recipe for breakfast muffins. Thanks. Read More

This recipe is super easy and really good. I was surprise at how moist my muffins turned out. I substituted apple sauce for the oil to make them even healthier. Still just as great! Read More
