I use the same base Bran Muffin recipe ALL THE TIME. It is the best I’ve ever found.
I change up the recipe slightly almost every time I make it, sometimes I add cinnamon, sometimes a banana, other fruit, nuts, etc. I add apple butter, change up the amounts of liquid or dairy. It is really extremely versatile. You could use a variety of flours, spices, or even liquids. The important part is the relative proportions.
Anyway, I wanted to make some muffins for Stephen before he left today so the recipe below is the variation I used. I didn’t try them but I’ve never made a bad batch of these muffins, no matter the changes I make (they’re always reasonable!). And they smelled incredible. Sometimes I want to bake muffins just so the house smells cozy.

Hi Kelley! I’m so glad you found this recipe through Holly & Rose! It’s the best bran muffin recipe I’ve found and they’re incredible with fresh blueberries!! I’m sure Stephen would have loved them! I actually made these during inspections when we were selling our house a couple of months ago and the smell worked a treat at making the place feel cosy! x
I found the recipe on your blog at the beginning of summer and after reading the ingredients I thought it was just so perfect. I’ve made them countless times. And it really is the most wonderful Bran Muffin recipe. I’m so glad you posted it! I’ve also had the chance to look at other posts you’ve made and I love your photography & recipes!
