These muffins are delicious! Very moist with a hint of sweetness and the molasses give the muffins a great rich flavor. I've made these a number of ways and like them best when adding 3/4 cup of quick oats to the dry ingredients for the base muffin. A mashed banana added to the bran/buttermilk mixture is yummy. I have also added a teaspoon of blackberry butter (can get from an Amish store) or any fruit jam to each muffin tin in between scoops of batter in each muffin tin for a nice filling. I have also substituted unsweetened dried apples (soaked in the butter milk for 10 minutes before adding the wheat bran) or a fresh chopped apple for the raisins and it came out great. For a nutritious breakfast I like to eat these muffins split and spread with almond butter (or peanut butter) with a banana on the side and a glass of milk. A great way to start the day!
Excellent muffins! I like the gooey bran muffins from Mimi's Cafe but my husband thinks they're too heavy. This recipe had all the sweetness but was just moist instead of dense. I did use applesauce instead of oil white whole wheat flour (from King Arthur) instead of all purpose and increased the molasses to 2 tbsp. and the golden raisins to about 3/4 cup. Baked in jumbo muffin tin (six giant muffins) at 375 for about 25 minutes. Yummy!
Excellent recipe! My man and I love it as a low fat snack. I substitute the oil with apple sauce use low fat buttermilk and typically add a bit more raisins. To switch things up as I make at least a batch a week I will sometimes use honey instead of molasses and blueberries with cranberries instead of raisins. Thanks so much for this now staple recipe!
Made exactly according to the recipe (except I used currants rather than raisins 'cause that's what I had). Tasty and nicely sweet in a bran-muffin kind of way. Thanks! People need to realize that bran muffins seldom rise much above the rim of the tin... it's the nature of the beast.
Simply delicious. I chose this recipe over the "Classic Bran Muffins" because this one had a little more sugar and molasses that I thought would make a sweeter muffin. I was right. This has the right amt of sweetness. The other recipe would not have enough. Also left out raisins don't like them. Overall moist and wonderful.
These muffins are AWESOME. The changes I make: 'sour milk' instead of buttermilk (1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar with 1 cup 1% milk) unsweetened applesauce instead of oil decrease brown sugar to 1/2 cup (or even a little less) whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. They are delicious and very nutritious!
