Bran Muffins: The Search Continues
On Royal Caribbean cruise ships, we love the buffet, especially the pastries and desserts. Every morning they have delicious muffins, including bran muffins. I never thought I would like bran muffins but at Mr. Higgins' urging, I gave them a try. Delicious!!!
And so I wanted to make my own bran muffins. So many recipes call for pure bran cereal....and that's not my favorite stuff. It makes mediocre muffins but nothing great. I finally stumbled upon a recipe that used real wheat bran and was low in calories (around 110). Of course, it took some looking to find wheat bran; I finally happened upon it at Kroger, which is quickly becoming my favorite stop for "fancy" foods.
On Tuesday, I whipped up these muffins. They're.....okay. Definitely not anything great. I ate three over the course of several days and then couldn't stomach anymore.
And so my search for a yummy bran muffin continues!
