Not your basic bran muffin--these muffins are chock full of bananas and honey.

Add butter, brown sugar, honey, bananas and eggs to bran cereal mixture; stir until well mixed. Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt just until moistened.

These muffins are excellent! They are moist, flavorful and just plain tasty! I did substitute Agave Nectar for honey (since I was out) and it worked just as well. I did double the amount, however, as honey is typically sweeter than Agave Nectar. I also added 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts and it complimented the recipe well. Instead of making 12 muffins, the recipe was perfect for 6 jumbo muffins. I tested them at 25 minutes and decided to leave them in for an additional minute to allow them to brown a bit more. My fiance could not believe it was a bran muffin.
I don't know if I used the wrong type of bran cereal or what happened, but this recipe was a real flop. Very bland and really chewy almost rubbery texture to the bran pieces. I had to throw the entire batch in the garbage.
They are very moist and flavorful. A tasty bran muffin for a change!

ginger and sesame to a
