“I cut this recipe off a cereal box and have kept it for years. I'm glad I did because I can't find it on the box anymore. This is the best bran muffin recipe I have ever tried. Everyone loves these. Even those that don't like bran muffins. These disappear in my home so I triple the recipe and make 2 dozen large muffins. The recipe calls for all purpose flour but I use mostly whole wheat and just add a bit of all purpose. The original recipe says to bake these at 400 for 20 minutes. My oven would burn them at that temperature so I bake mine at 325 for 20-25 minutes. Every oven is different.”
