I was searching all over the internet for a good but very healthy recipe for bran muffins. I tried recipes from other websites including Americas Test Kitchen and Martha Stewart but still couldn't find the right one. This is a VERY GOOD recipe but I made it better and arguably healthier. I used all whole what pastry flour instead of half whole and half white. I used a 50%50% mixture of wheat bran and oat bran. As other posters have noted, the muffins are not very sweet so I also added a 1/4 cup of honey and a 1/2 cup dried berries. I used one egg and one white instead of just the one egg called for in the recipe. I also substituted canola oil for the butter. Lastly, I doubled the size and only got 13 muffins but they rose higher and had the traditional "muffin top" dome. In order to keep the calories down I can only have a half a muffin for breakfast though.
