"These are good. The bran makes them more dense than regular muffin recipes. I don't like muffins that are sweet like cupcakes but these are not sweet at all. I would use a whole cup of brown sugar next time or maybe put a brown sugar glaze on them."

"I got 30 regular size muffins out of this recipe. Very tasty and easy to make. I added the cereal to the wet ingredients while I shredded the apples, turned out great."

"Very, very good! I soaked 3 cups of Raisin Bran cereal in the combined wet ingredients for a few minutes before adding the remaining dry ingredients. Extra raisin-y ... Extra yummy!"

"These sound so good. Could Raisin Bran be used??"

"This is an extremely easy recipe without any of what my mother referred to as "fancy ingredients". Most everyone has the majority of these ingredients on their cupboard shelf.

Another post asked if the All Bran was the cereal or something else. Yes, the name is in capital letters and it is All Bran cereal."

"Thanks juicyfruit007, I wonder if bran flakes would work and thanks to you now I know."

"My family ate these up! My only complaint now is seeing that there are 9 grams of fat in each muffin? That seems a little high for what I thought was a pretty healthy breakfast. Maybe I'll replace the canola oil with something lighter?"

"I have made this recipe several times now. They are pretty good, though a bit "healthy" tasting. I use bran flakes, crunching them down into the measuring cup, and that has worked just fine."
