I created this recipe by trial and error. I've only had one outstanding bran muffin at a restaurant, and wanted to come up with a awesome one to make myself. These are moist, healthy, not too sweet and so tasty! Full of grains and fruits.—Nancy, Rens, Prescott, Arizona
When our daughter Lisa was growing up, she was always eager to help me cook, especially sweets! When her father came in for a late brunch after working hard in the fields, she loved to have these made-from-scratch muffins waiting for him.
As the owner is a bed-and-breakfast, I'm always looking for new great-tasting breakfast recipes. So when I discovered this blueberry muffin recipe, it immediately became a "standard" with the country breakfast I serve my guests.
Yummy and golden, these muffins are packed with plenty of berries and are a great addition to a brunch menu. But at our house, muffins aren't relegated to mornings - we also enjoy them for supper or for snacks anytime.

These are my husband's favorite muffins so I love to keep them on hand. They freeze and reheat beautifully. Just warm them in the oven for 30 seconds and you're ready to go! —Amber Cummings, Indianapolis, Indiana
Bursting with berries and drizzled with a light lemony glaze, these muffins are moist, tender and truly something special. This is one recipe you simply must try for family and friends. —Kathy Harding, Richmond, Missouri
I consider this recipe a blank canvas for different combinations of preserves and zest. The blueberry-lemon is a tried-and-true favorite, but apricot preserves and orange zest or blackberry preserves with lime zest would be fun to try. —Maria Regakis, Somerville, Massachusetts
When my sister and I spent the night at our grandmother's house, we often requested these muffins for breakfast. Today, I bake them for my kids. The very aroma is a trip down memory lane.—Kris Michels Walled Lake, Michigan
