I think this is a lovely, moist muffin. It's not too sweet. I used raisins but nuts would be nice too, I'm sure. Mine made 15 nice-sized muffins. I'll freeze these and make this again.As an update the next day, these froze really well and my husband liked them and he's not usually a fan of bran muffins. I followed the recipe exactly and used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. A keeper!
