Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/4 cups
All-Bran Original* cereal
lightly packed brown sugar
very ripe bananas (reserve 12 thin slices, mash remainder)
semi-sweet chocolate chips
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.
These muffins are awesome! I got the recipe from my mom and have made two double batches, giving half of each away. I used a light tasting olive oil, because that's what I had. Instead of doubling chocolate chips, used 1/3 cup chips, 1/3 cup walnuts. Turned out great, though doubling the recipe yields fewer than 24 muffins.
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!
Made them today and they were great.
These are delicious! I have had a box of bran buds sitting in my cupboard forever, and I think I'll soon be running out of them because I plan to make these muffins over and over again! YUM! They are not too sweet, but richly chocolatey tasting and with a nice banana hint, too. I made these with half and half regular flour and whole wheat flour, and also added a tablespoon of flax seed meal for even more fiber. These taste like an unhealthy chocolate muffin you'd buy at a convenience store, but are way, way better for you! Awesome!
These are the best bran muffins I have ever made!!! Will be making them again for sure. Thank you for the recipe.
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.
Great recipe! I used half whole wheat flour and they turned out great. Almost like a cupcake but much healthier :) I don't recommend the banana on top though... I goes brown and mushy very quickly. I made them for my son's preschool class and they were a hit!

These muffins are so moist and flavorful, you won't believe they're healthy, too!
