Best Bran Muffins

I've never understood why bran muffins get such a bad wrap.  They are tasty and healthy.  How can they miss with that combination?  Enjoy.


1 c. wheat bran
3/4 c. flour
1 c. whole wheat flour
1/4 c. brown sugar
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/8 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 egg
1 stick of butter, melted
3 heaping T. low-fat sour cream
1 can of pears (or peaches), drained and chopped
1/2 c. molasses


1.  Preheat oven to 350.  Prep muffin tin with liners or spray with cooking spray.

2.  Mix dry ingredients together.  Mix wet ingredients together, including fruit.

3.  Add wet to dry and mix until just combined.

4.  Divide among 12 muffin cups and bake for about 20-25 minutes.

  1. I know! You know who had good bran muffins? McDonalds back in the day, that was so good for a healthy fast food breakfast. Don't tell Dad. I would have gone to BK if they had them and McD's was close by my house in El Paso at the time.
