"This recipe has 1 cup natural bran which makes this recipe good with fiber. Also can use applesauce or sour cream instead of vegetable oil. I found that a little applesauce with the chopped apples and a little streusel topping in the middle makes a nice middle of muffin if you would like to make a gourmet muffin. I have found" — gailw

This review is based on how I made this recipe: I made this without the streusal topping and found it to be okay but lacking in flavour. For next time, I suggest increasing the cinnamon to 2 tsp and add 1/2 tsp nutmeg and use the streusal topping. I should update the review at that time.
This is my first attempt at making any kind of bran muffin so I don't have anything to compare it to, but as a muffin on it's own it was a tasty, healthy muffin. The recipe says makes 12, but I followed it almost exactly and got 18 standard size muffins. The only thing I changed was going half oil & half applesauce. The slightly sweet is just right I think, and I cut up 2 regular size apples (which was about 2 1/3 c. when chopped) and that was plenty. They're a little crumbly, but that might be because of the oil change. Or because we ate them too quickly after taking out of the oven :) Will try following recipe exactly next time & see how they turn out.
