    I thought these muffins were great.
    I got 10 good size muffins out of the recipe.
    My suggestion would be taking them out of the oven right away to keep them moist. Bran has the tendency to dry out if baked too long. Yummy1 - 8/16/08

    These were really good. I have tried them with blueberries and raspberries. I never have apple sauce on hand but I use low fat french vanilla yogurt instead and they were great. Everyone loves them in my house. I also make 12 muffins instead of 8. - 3/17/10

    SO good.
    I substituted 1/3 cup Splenda brown sugar blend for the brown sugar; added 1/4 c. ground flax; used mixed frozen berries and a small banana instead of just the blueberries and these turned out great. I also made 12 muffins instead of 8 which (which my changes) makes these 100 kcal/each. :) - 1/31/09

  • I used your recipe as the base for my attempt to make the "perfect breakfast muffin." All I've changed so far is that I substituted egg beaters for the egg, and substituted 1/4 cup wheat germ for 1/4 of the flour. I got 12 wonderful muffins from this that had amazing muffin tops (the best part!) - 3/20/11

  • For a low fat muffins these are great!! I substituted splenda for 1/2 the sugar, but found the muffins a little too sweet. I will cut back next time. My batch made 12 good sized muffins. - 8/29/10

  • Just made these for the 1st time and they were SO GOOD. Changes I made: omitted the egg, upped the apple sauce to 3/4 cup, added a dash of cinnamon and a dash of fresh nutmeg. Next time, I think I'll coat the blueberries in flour before adding and decrease the sugar. But otherwise, YUM! - 8/21/10

  • I had my doubts, but these are GOOD. Oh yum! I cut the sugar down to a scant 1/2 cup, and subbed in rice milk (can't have dairy) with no problems. I also made it into 12 muffins. - 7/27/08

  • I don't like bran but these are really yummy and so much healthier. This same recipe got great reviews on allrecipes.com which is where I found it. The only changes I made is to make 12 muffins instead of 8. Brings the calories down to 123, 1g fat. Only other change was to double the blueberries. - 7/25/08
