SO HOW'D IT GO?

i loved these! i made a few changes...ok so a lot of changes- pastry flour instead of white, 1c of water instead of soymilk, wholesome sweeteners zero instead of sugar and frozen mango instead of blueberries. oh, and i added 1tsp cinnamon. i made jumbo muffins and they baked for 27min. good stuff!!

These were super delicious muffins!!  And so easy to make too!  I did a few substitutions..... I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 whole wheat pastry flour and used turbindo raw sugar instead of the brown sugar. 
Oh, and I put in fresh cut pears, as someone had suggested.  I don't know if I would do pears again; they didn't soften as much as I thought they would while baking but...still very good!  I will make this again!

By the way, this recipe is almost identical to the 'low fat bran muffin' also on this site; that recipe calls for an extra 1/4 c of mashed banana.  I was trying to decide which one to do before I realized-hey they are the same!

Excellent recipe. Perfect texture too -- not too dense or too moist. I used half wheat flour, half all purpose flour. Didn't have blueberries so I used a 1/2 cup dried cranberries instead.

I'm so happy to have found this recipe! I just made another type of vegan bran muffin i found on the site, but they turned out super... dense, and not too flavourful. I can't wait to try these, and i hope that mine look (and taste) as good as yours do blushmuffin!

The first time I made these, I used oat bran (that was all I had) and they were pretty good. The second time around I tried wheat bran and wow, where these ever good! Instead of 3/4 cup of fruit, I used 1 cup because I like more fruit in my muffins. I think for more variation, I will try soaking the bran in mashed bananas or maybe even pureed pumpkin...I'll report the results!

I gave these 4 stars, because they were tasty but SUPER moist - as in, almost TOO moist, bordering on wet. I even cooked them for an extra 10 minutes. Did anyone else experience this? Next time I might use extra flour or less liquid. I used all whole-wheat flour, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks!

BRANTASTIC!  :o I left out the applesauce and added 1 1/4 cups of grated pear, 1tbsp of grated ginger, and 1 tbsp of safflower oil to the wet mix. I also added a 1/2 tsp ginger powder and 1/2 tsp nutmeg to my dry mix. MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmm Ginger pear bran - of all treats muffins are my favorite, and of all muffins this ranks #2 in my favorite, right after morning glory muffins ;D
