Stir up this batch of hearty, low-fat morning treats. Kissed with brown sugar, they're moist and taste more indulgent than they are.

Made this recipe for the first time and came out perfect and delicious. Not to sweet. I didn’t have whole wheat flour so instead used 1/4 cup regular flour + 1/4 cup organic integral oats. PERFECT!!!

This recipe is AWESOME just the way it is, especially since I just got a new red 7 quart 1.3 horsepower KitchenAid Stand Mixer!!

Well I have to say this is a great basic recipe. The first time I made these I didn't have whole wheat flour so I used an equal amount of white , I also didn't have brown sugar so I used a proper equivalent of molasses and the muffins looked beautiful when they were baked but tasted sort of dry. The second time I made these muffins I had brown sugar and whole wheat flour to properly follow instructions but used part Raisin Bran cereal, part Special K vanilla almond cereal,, and Cranberry Almond Crunch cereal. Oh My goodness, what a lovely mix especially with the cranberries from the cereal.

I've been making these muffins now for about a month significant other takes them to work for his breakfast he loves them. I've added apple pie filling, bananas, pecans, currants, cherries, cranberries, and different dried fruit not all at the same time of course, and each time it taste a little different I get rave reviews he loves them. Thanks so much for the recipe it's wonderful.

Dear Martha I tried your Raisin Bran muffin and they are great and will make them again. They had better flavor than the ones I have made in the past.

i thought these were terrific. If you and your kids have been eating muffins that are more truly cake, you might not prefer these. most of my muffins come out pretty dense bc I prefer them more on the "healthy" side. Mine weren't too sweet bc I used Kashi raisin bran--the flakes aren't sweet, and the raisins aren't covered in sugar. All in all, i really enjoyed them and will definitely make them again!

There were very good. My only issue was she says to use a standard 6 cup pan. Either my pan isn't standard or I should have filled to overflowing cause I got 8 not 6 muffins. I would make again however!

These were very chewy and not from overmixing as I gently folded in ingredients. I used a ripe banana to give more moisture and choc chips on some of them. They are still on the table. This kids took a bite and said no thanks.

These muffins have a subtle, wholesome flavor. I substituted applesauce for the oil, and reduced the sugar a little. I also added walnuts as a topping. So yummy.

These muffins are a big hit in my home! I add dried cranberrys, chopped dates and chopped walnuts to the wet ingredients and about 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla for extra goodness. Sometimes I add chopped dried cherries also. These muffins are simple and have great flavor. Good any time; morning, noon or evening.

I made these muffins in a hurry this morning for my Mom who was coming over to watch my little ones. I can't begin to tell you how delicious they were. I didn't have Raisin Bran cereal. I used what I had on hand which was Fiber One Whole Grain Flakes with Honey clustered. I Only put in 1/2 the brown sugar called for and my family went nuts over them! Thanks for a great recipe that I'm adding to my muffin recipe collection.

My three-year-old son and I absolutely love to make these muffins. The ingredients are almost always on hand, they're simple to make and they bake quickly. They're just sweet enough that he thinks they're a treat and healthy enough to be breakfast. It's a rare week that we don't make a batch. I use what I consider to be a standard size muffin tin and I usually get 9-10 muffins per batch, or 7 standard muffins and 12 miniature muffins. This is easily my favorite recipe from Everyday Food.
