Juicy blueberries and apples make a nice addition to these moist, hearty muffins. Bran cereal helps pump up fiber to 5 g. Betsy King - Duluth, Minnesota

"I made theses a few weeks ago for a meeting at work and everyone loved them! I used whole wheat pastry flour to help them rise a little better and fiber one cereal instead of all bran. They turned out great! I will definitely will be making these again!"

"I've made this recipe three times in the last week. My family can't get enough of them. I was shocked that even my 6 year-old picky eater likes them."

"Although these were fairly tasty, the muffins didn't rise much, if at all. Maybe the lack of salt is to blame? I did like the combo of apples, bananas and blueberries."
