Breakfast Bran Muffins
My family can get tired of the same old breakfasts. That's why I keep a batch of these moist muffins in the freezer. Everyone loves the terrific molasses flavor.—Nancy Kearney, Massillon, Ohio

I put in walnuts instead of raisins. I also used 3 cups of all Bran ,I didn't have bran flakes. Turned out great.

Delicious, moist, and nutritious. I make it frequently. Using Raisin Bran and adding pecans make it even better.
