A co-worker asked me to make some bran muffins. The first recipe I tried (not Taste of Home) was for wheat bran muffins. They didn't turn out very good. Then I tried this recipe. These are really good! I have always thought bran muffins are dry and tasteless. These are moist and taste great. And they are fairly healthy!

Trying to use up my oat bran bought for another recipe I came across this. It is really tasty for a morning muffin and coffee. I also added mini chocolate chips for my extra sweet tooth!!
