jumbo bran muffins

There are not many people I know that enjoy the taste of bran, and although I’m not really sure why, ever since I was a little girl I have loved the taste of bran muffins! They are one of my favorite baked good breakfast options (besides waffles and bagels, of course). I got the original recipe from the box cutout my mom has in her recipe collection from when I was younger. Today I use Splenda, egg whites and applesauce for a lighter, moist muffin. I also modified the ingredient amounts  to fit a jumbo muffin pan. :) Enjoy!

  1. I too have always LOVED bran muffins – it’s weird I know! And your bran muffins are awesome! I love the idea of making them in a jumbo muffin tin – I’ll have to get one of those someday =)

    • I purchased the jumbo muffin tin for a different culinary experiment, but then thought jumbo muffins would be awesome so I revised my recipe to fit the jumbo muffin tin and it is great!!! I actually make them one weekend and freeze the left overs for another time or for later in the week :)

  2. A wonderful thing about your blog is that you show the steps in pictures along the way. So often when I try to follow a recipe, I think, Is this the way the ingredients are supposed to look at this point? Letting me compare what I’m mixing together with your photos makes me more confident that I’m on the right track and that I will have something eatable when I’m done. So thanks, Andrea!
