"The first time I made these muffins, I used a Gala apple and scotch oats instead since that's what I had on hand and they turned out great, very moist, with a slightly crisp top, not too sweet, very good flavor my boyfriend had 3 at one time, I took some to work the coworkers wanted the recipe gave some to my mom she loved them and now by popular demand I just finished baking my second batch all within 3 days. These make bran muffins very boring."
