Oat Bran Muffins

Oat Bran Muffins


"This is not OATMEAL, but oat BRAN muffins. I have made these for about five years now, and I really love them. They are great made with cinnamon or cranberry applesauce, as well as plain applesauce. My daughter loves them and I hope you will enjoy them, too!"

I am not sure why these muffins tasted very very - I followed the recipe to the tee but added a bit of cinnamon. I think they tasted like they had too much baking powder or soda in them which I...

We LOVE this recipe. We use a doubled version of this recipe and make it at least once a week, and freeze them, leaving out 4-6 to eat immediately :) Then each day, we take a few out. They de...

The first time I made these muffins I thought they were too salty and a bit dry. The second time I made them I reduced the baking soda and baking powder to 1 teaspoon each, increased the oil to ...

I've made these several times and they always come out good. I usually substitute wheat flour for at least half of the all-purpose flour. To enhance the flavor I add 1 tsp cinnamon and vanilla...

Very good recipe. However, I followed past reviewers advice to change it a bit. I used 1.5 cups whole wheat flour (no bleached flour), 1.5 cups applesauce, .5 cups splenda, reduced brown sugar...

These are good as far as the ingredients go. I prefer to use a more traditional quick bread/muffin method: Combine the oat bran and applesauce first, and let them sit together to soften the bra...

I made only two changes; I used light brown sugar because that was all I had and I used melted butter instead of vegetable oil only because I'm low on oil right now. The applesauce I used was my...

This is a great recipe! I did not have applesauce, but did have a can of pumpkin pie mix. I used 1.5 cups of that, added 1 T of honey, 1 t of Vanilla and 1 cup of black currants. Wow! Moist and ...
