Anyway, I’ll get off memory lane and come back to the recipe…. whip these tasty muffins up one day and let me know how much you loved them! (By the way, you can buy bran at a health food store that has bran in a bulk bin. It is MUCH cheaper than buying a little prepackaged bag at the grocery store.)
