With their golden brown tops, pretty flecks of orange and bursts of raisin sweetness, these bran muffins are anything but ordinary! Our Test Kitchen staff fine-tuned the recipe to make them extra moist and tender.

"These are a great muffin when you don't want something overlywhelmingly sweet. They turned out really good, suprisingly moist and I loved the raisins in them. I had to substitute oat bran for wheat bran, because I didn't have any, and the muffins came out great and they freeze well too!"
