Bran Banana Muffins Recipe

Publisher Photo
Several years ago I experimented with a banana muffin recipe by adding bran cereal. I loved the results and have been making this flavorful version ever since. Try replacing the chocolate chips and nuts with chopped dates for a delicious change of pace. -Alyce Wyman, Pembina, North Dakota

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 15, 2014

These are just ok. I have had, and even made, much better bran muffins. If you don't like the combination of banana and chocolate, skip this one. They would be better without the chocolate chips. IMO.

These are moist and delicious, and the bran flakes give them a special crunchiness.

here's what I changed-I had coconut milk to use up and that worked fine. I added half wheat flour and use Special K Vanilla and Almond cereal. They were great!
