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


Blushinmuffin, you create the most beautiful food I've ever seen!  I'm inspired!


I used frozen raspberries instead of blueberries, oat bran instead of wheat bran, and whipped up a little raspberry juice glaze to put on top. perfection!
thanks for the recipe.


These were delicious! I didn't use blueberries because the ones i have were kinda sour. I used half whole wheat flour and half whole wheat pastry flour, and added cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. I will be making these on a regular basis, these are the first bran muffins i've had that i've actually liked! :)


Really good!  They rise well, even with half whole wheat flour.  Light texture, but lotsa flavour.  I used spelt bran instead of wheat bran, and added 1-1/2 tsp of oil to better mimic the cafe muffins I'm addicted to.  Baking time was 20 mins. :D
