Footnotes

  • Tip: These moist, decadent muffins are especially good if eaten while they are still warm from the oven! If you reheat them from room temperature in the microwave oven, they just need about 20 seconds per muffin at a gentle heat setting (medium or medium low).
  • In keeping with good allergy practices, we remind you to be aware of allergens and to check labels on any packaged goods used. This recipe has been tested using Kellogg's* products. Results with other products may vary.

Great muffins !! I love bran so this was a nice change from the usual plain bran muffin. Great way to use those overripe bananas too. I also used Splenda and replaced half the flour with soy flour to bring the carb count down so my son & I could enjoy one on our lo-carb meal plan.

Very tasty, moist muffin! Only changes I made was to use coconut oil (melted first), 1/2 white and 1/2 whole wheat flour, and added an extra 1/2 cup bran flakes (sorry, Kelloggs...didn't have All Bran!) I might add more bran flakes next time - maybe a whole extra cup. All-in-all...I will be making these again!

I hate bran, so this recipe was a way for me to try to get more fibre in a muffin that tastes great. And this worked for me! Yum. Very moist and not overly sweet at all, which is how I prefer my baked goods.
