    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

  • 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

    Reply from LRUSSELLFAMILY (11/3/10)
    Yes, this is correct. I suppose the difference is density. Also the 180 of flour is for 1-1/2 cups.

  • Moist, not-to-sweet, and hits the sweet spot without feeling unhealthy. I added 1/4 cup dessicated coconut, pumpkin pie spice, some protein powder, used rolled oats instead of oat bran, used BOTH raisins and chocolate chips, and used 1/4 cup maple syrup and 1/4 cup brown sugar. - 10/31/10

  • I make these every two weeks and freeze them for my lunch. I put in 2 tsp of cinnamon an 2 tsp of cloves. Sometimes I omit the chips and add raisins. You would never know these are good for you. - 5/3/10

  • These were exceptionately delicious and I would serve them to anyone and not even tell them how healthy they are with the flax and oat bran in them. It also was just enough to curb that chocolate urge I had. Fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - 2/12/10

  • I used rolled oats processed to a fine flour in place of oat bran. It was a suggested substitute from an online source. The muffins were tasty and moist. I will be making them again. - 1/1/10
