Classic Bran Muffins

by Angie Liew
There’s something incredibly comforting about a bran muffin. The flavour is somewhat wholesome: just sweet enough for a treat but not guilt-fully sweet.
Bran muffins are perfect for breakfast as the bran mixture can be kept unbaked in the refrigerator for up to one week.  It’s so great that you can scoop up as much muffin mixture as you desire, bake them right away. And you’ll always have fresh, warm muffin when you want it!

Notes

Please note that it’s preferred to make the bran batter a day in advance so the bran can soften and the batter thicken.
Cool the muffins before serving.  Serve warm.

 

Full with texture of nutty bran, the top and edges are slightly chewy and crusty while the muffin is fluffy and moist.

 

Great healthy muffins indeed!  Also a delicious source of fibre!  Simply excellent as they weren’t
“typical” bran muffins because they were so amazingly moist and very tasty……………. So. Enjoy!
