    These are delicious! Healthfulness of bran and pumpkin with little hits of semi-sweet chocolate! I did replace the sugar with brown sugar and used only 1 egg - added a splash more buttermilk instead. Stayed together fine and were very moist. - 9/9/09

    Yuuuum! These are so good and super moist. Make sure you use some pam on the muffin tins to easily remove them. I couldn't find oat bran or flax seed at two grocery stores so I used 1.5 cups of old fashioned cooking oats instead. - 9/27/13

    replaced the chocolate chips with chopped cranberries as we have a family member who doesn't care for chocolate. Nice fall flavor mix! - 10/22/11

    45 g of flaxseed is listed as .5 cup but 180 g of flour (4 x as much) is listed as 1.5 cups?? Is this correct? Is it due to differing density? - 11/2/10

    Yes, this is correct. I suppose the difference is density. Also the 180 of flour is for 1-1/2 cups.
