Kid Approved

I originally made them for my husband, but my kids loved them!(7 and 2 years old) I used applesauce instead of the oil and they turned out great. Quick and easy to make!

Moist and tasty

These are great for an on-the-go breakfast. I substituted bran cereal and added 1/2 cup of dried cranberries. Dee-lish!

Healthy addition to breakfast routine

I really love to have healthy muffins on hand (fresh or in the freezer), and these were a great addition to my line-up. I used half whole-wheat and half regular flour and it was fine. You would never know there were bran flakes in here!

Apple bran muffins are pretty good. My husband really enjoyed them. I'm more of a blueberry muffin girl but they weren't that bad.
