Better Bran Muffin

Read Time:1 Minute, 28 Second

Improving a classic muffin

I love bran muffins, but I find most recipes to be really dry. So I set out to create a better bran muffin, and this is what I came up with.

Even more so when making vegan recipes, its can be pretty hard to make a moist muffin that doesn’t taste like its been laced with banana or applesauce.

I developed this recipe as an alternative. I think it tastes better than bakery muffins. They are also an excellent source of fibre!

I would love to hear how yours turn out. If you make any modifications, I’d also love to hear how it goes.
