    Good, but a touch bland - I think they need a dash of salt, or cinnamon, or even a wee bit of sugar - something. Great texture, though! - 8/20/08

  • I made these for my child who has an impacted colon (eww, I know) Goodness, they're bitter! Even after smothering them in honey, I can barely choke one down so I know she won't eat them. I don't bake much (too precise) so can someone suggest what I can do to make this recipe a little more palatable? - 10/26/11

  • Your calorie calculations are way off! The flours are definitely wrong - should be 1.5C for the whole wheat and .66C for the soy - 1/26/11

  • These did come out a bit bitter for me, but I also think that that is just the nature of bran. However, I used my own applesause (In which I used only apples, no sweetener). The remaning dough I added honey to and they came out great, of course it will change the nutritional info a bit. - 10/18/07

  • These came out very bitter for me; did I do something wrong, or is the wheat bran just really bitter?

    thanks... - 9/22/07

  • Excellent! We had these for dinner with eggs and sausage and so forth and hubby ate 3 of them! I left the peel on the red apples and that was fine. Next time, I will add some cinnamon and nutmeg! - 9/14/07

  • I'm not a big bran muffin fan, but I wanted to try this one. It's different than other recipies that I've used and I know that fiber is all-important to my health. I was not disappointed. This is a bran muffin that I'll eat again and again! Thank you! - 9/1/07

  • Very modest in calories, light & fluffy, but incredibly high in protein and fiber! Nutrient-dense, but tasty -- NANCYJAC has done it again. My husband and daughter like these too. Not sweet, like typical muffins, but wonderful for a healthy on-the-go breakfast or snack! - 8/21/07
