OK, this is the very first review I've ever actually done from probably 20 recipes I've tried. I love these muffins They astonished me. I've hardly used my bag of whole wheat flour for 4 years because everything I ever tried to make with it is dry. These are not dry. They are not sweet either. But they are very high in Fiber and vitamins. I think I'm going to try to add cocoa and some brown sugar to the recipe and choc. chips and try to get my daughter to eat them. I've been dying for a great bran muffin recipe that I don't feel guilty eating. Thanks so much for this. Oh, I also just added all liquid ingrediants together and dry together and then added them together. I don't know what size muffins that Alan makes but I made 24 regular muffin cup size muffins not 12. Couldn't find the barley malt flour so I just left it out. All the rest was exactly as the recipe stated.

I just made these muffins and they weren't sweet enough and were too dense.

This is what a bran muffin should taste like! Thankyou to Latisha who said it was too dense, it was that"negative feedback"that made me want to try it.I`ve been looking for a dense and flavorful bran muffin and most often the sugar content is so high that is all one tastes. I use a"gold" whole wheat flour that I order from wheat Montana, it worked well in this recipe and it`s chemical-free.I also ground the raisins and then added some additional dried fruit blend consisting of cherries,blueberry and strawberry.I also added a scoop of no flavor soy based protein powder and got away with it! Thanks for a great muffin!

This is an excellent high fiber muffin recipe! and easy to make. Thank you Alan! I used buckwheat flour, egg replacer, soy milk and honey with the rest of the given ingredients and they came out great.

these turned out delicious! changed it a bit... after reading the reviews I decied to replace 1 cup bran with white flour to make them less dense (they're still plenty dense), I relpaced wheat germ with oats (very good decision!), and I added chopped walnuts and cinnamon. They are a great texture and not too dry. They'll be excellent for breakfast or quick snacks.

These muffins are great! - But as Fabricgirl said ther is something missing - Salt. The next time I try these muffins I will add 1/2 tsp salt. I made a couple of changes too. I used 2 cups of blueberries - WOW! and I didn't have the malt barley flour but I added a tablespoon of flaxseed. My husband really liked these muffins and he hates all things healthy. I almost forgot - with the additional cup of berries - the recipe yeilded 18 muffins. Thanks Jay!

THESE MUFFINS ARE REALLY GOOD AND TASTY. I ADDED CINNAMON CHIPS INSTEAD OF THE RAISINS, AND ALSO SPRINKLED A LITTLE CINNAMON SUGAR ON THE TOP. THEY WERE NOT TOO SWEET, BUT ADDED A LITTLE SWEETNESS TO IT. THE ONLY THING THAT CONFUSED ME, WAS IN THE DIRECTIONS, IT DOESN'T MENTION ADDING THE OIL, HONEY OR THE RAISINS. I JUST ADDED THE OIL AND HONEY TO THE LIQUID INGREDIENTS. REALLY GOOD MUFFINS! THANKS! SUE
