    Chef #1317874's Note:

    I was looking for a low calorie healthy bran muffin recipe that tasted like a traditional bran muffin, and finally came up with a sort of "Frankenstein monster" conglomeration of a basic recipe with several substitutions. They turned out great and at around 100 calories per muffin they have become my favorite. NOTE: You can use any combination of oat bran and wheat bran to make the 1 1/2 cups bran. Oat bran has its own benefits, but adds more calories.

      I really enjoyed these bran muffins! I originally made them for my mother, but ended up keeping the first batch for myself so I had to make her some more. I used 1 cup grape nuts cereal (didn't have bran flakes on hand), did not sour the milk, used 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of Splenda, and substituted the molasses for honey. They were wonderful :) The muffins I made are 4 points plus values if you follow Weight Watchers :)

      A very good recipe. Moist, a good flavor and texture. I added 1/2 t. cinnamon, 1/4 t. nutmeg, 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup golden raisins. Made 14 muffins. I made them in muffin cups and they did stick to the paper a little just FYI. Thank you for the recipe! I will be making these again.

      Such a good recipe! Muffins are moist and have flavor. I didn't have wheat bran so substituted with wheat germ and worked just as good. Thank you for sharing this excellent recipe for such wonderful bran muffins.
