The muffins were delicious although a little sweet for my taste. Next time, very soon, I will make another batch but I will use only 1/2 cup of sugar.
I left home while the muffins were cooling down. When I came back, 5 of them were missing. My family loved them.

Yum! I used 2 medium braeburn apples, left the carrots out, and substituted the oat barn for wheat bran. I really like these a lot. they are filling and full of fiber and some protein! Submitted by:

Very tasty recipe. Half the brown sugar works well. You can also use rolled oats instead of oat bran just put them in the blender or food processor. They are very moist. Plastic wrap each one and place in a freezer bag and take out one at a time for a snack on the run etc. Submitted by:

I cut the brown sugar to 3/4 cup, used skim milk, 1/2 oz. of pecans instead of all the walnuts, and made 18 muffins for 118 calories. I will make them again!! Submitted by:

I made these with dates instead of raisins and actually forgot to put the sugar in! They are still pretty sweet with all that fruit in them. next time I will miss the sugar on purpose! Great recipe! Submitted by:

These are great! I didn't add nuts or raisins and used skim milk instead of 2%. According to the revised recipe calculation this cut the calorie count down to only 86 per muffin. Submitted by:

I thought these were wonderful. I used the optional raisins and
nuts (walnuts), and I had some cinnamon applesauce to use up, so in it went instead of the apples. So my muffins are higher in calories- I will have to adjust for that when I enter my nutrition. I ate one warm and it was great!

Just made these tonight and am truly impressed! They have a great flavour and give a great full feeling! The only changes I made were to use what I had Egg Beaters instead of eggs, skim milk, instead of 2%, and Splenda brown sugar mix in lieu of the brown sugar, cutting a few calories and fat.

I used skim milk, and only half the brown sugar. I did use raisins, but not nuts. They were good, but a little dry, so the second batch, I added a little water to the mixture, and that helped. They are small, but I guess that's how they can keep the calories down. Good with a cup of coffee. Submitted by:

i'm excited to try this! what's the best way to boost the protein content of these muffins? a much higher (~15g) protein content would make them perfect. Submitted by:

Made these with apple sauce since it was way easier than dealing with fresh! Also, I used the Splenda brown sugar with just a tad of aftertaste. Overall, very moist and tasty and great for freezing and eating as a snack. Submitted by:

Too much sugar. Need to substitute something like brown rice syrup or something else with a lower glycemic index Submitted by:

After reading the many wonderful reviews, I tried this -- using Splenda brown sugar blend. We like a lot of whole grain recipes, and it meets other need in terms of low fat, low sugar. Delicious. It did take time to make, but well worth it! Submitted by:

I've been trying to find a good nutritional recipe for bran muffins - the store bought is way too laden with sugar and/or corn syrup. Can't wait to make these. Woo hoo! Submitted by:

I cut the sugar by half. Used 1tbsp of cinamon not 2. I used oat bran flakes and ground them up. I don't use milk so I substituted 6tbsp of water and 1/2 cup of apple and carrot juice.
They came out moist and yummy. I will make this recipe again for sure.
