MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2012

Bleh. I made these just as written, only with the addition of some raisins (because the bran flakes cereal had raisins in it). The first night they were pretty good and the kids loved the chocolate chips. The next morning they were drier and blander and even chocolate chips couldn't redeem them enough to be eaten. Really not very good. I won't make these again.

MY REVIEW

Not sure what happened, I followed the recipe exactly. I didn't like the flavor, and thought there was too much bran cereal. We love bran bread and muffins, so not sure why these didn't have a better flavor. they were not very sweet either, thought they needed a bit more sugar rather than less noted by the last reviewer. Just not a winner for me....

I have made this recipe many times. I add 2 teaspoons of vanilla. The combination of chocolate chips and peanut butter set this recipe apart from the usual bran muffins. These are the only bran muffins I make now.

Very tasty and they froze very well. I cut out 1/4 cup of the sugar, and they still tasted great. Will definitely make again.
