Really good tasting muffin! I used WW flour instead of AP flour. The blueberries really made these muffins moist and for my taste I think it had too many blueberries as it went mushy. So, next time I will decrease the berries. The orange flavour was really nice and delicate, it didn't overpower the bran muffin. We really liked this muffin. Thx.
Good. Kinda mushy. I don't think it's the blueberries, since for me a cup didn't overwhelm; I think it's the bran. It's just not going to absorb liquid the way flour does. (Also, I used coconut oil, which is a soft solid at room temp, so that might have affected the texture, too.) Still, the flavors are nice, and they're relatively healthy! Thanks!
I did not have sour cream so I substituted blueberry yogurt. Tasted great. I agree with the review that said to add less blueberries. 2/3 of a cup is great. Also when I used medium muffin liners I was able to get 12 muffins.
You could exchange the fruit also. Ive made it with raspberries and cranberries as well.
The BEST! So glad you shared this one. My #1 picky queen granddaughter loves them as well. great way to sneak in some fiber.
I love these! I did have to sub a bit. My husband is diabetic so I used WW Pastry Flour instead of AP. I thought I had blueberries, but only had blackberries. Luckily, they were really sweet. I cut them in half. My middle son also ate my last orange, so I had to sub a sweet grapefruit. I only used 1/3 cup of brown sugar & added 1/3 a cup of Splenda. They are nutty, moist & flavorful. This will be my go to healthy muffin from now on. Endless possibilities. Thanks for sharing!
These muffins came out wonderful. The only change I had to make was to sub wheat bran for the oat bran. For the life of me, I couldn't find any oat bran, except Kellogg's Cracklin Oat Bran, but that had cinnamon and nutmeg in it, plus it would have had to be crushed. For her Christmas present, I gave my daughter a "snack of the month". This month's theme was Bran, and these went into that package. I had to bake them 18 minutes. I used a large navel orange. You can really taste the orange in them. I used frozen blueberries, and did not thaw them before adding them to the flour. These muffins really are good. I recommend them.
I appreciate so much a healthy, but still very delicious, recipe. Like this one! It is light, moist, and full of flavor. I used dried wild blueberries rather than fresh, but otherwise followed the recipe. I'll be making these often.
Make sure you double the recipe. It only made about 8 muffins.
