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!
