This one is really popular in my house. These muffins are light and moist, have no sugar, tons of flavor. Oat bran is even lower in calories than oatmeal. It is sold with the hot cereals in the breakfast aisle. Its texture is similar to farina and many people cook it in a pot just like any hot cereal. It tastes like oatmeal and is extremely filling. Turning it into a muffin makes it a great on-the-go option. I keep them stocked in my freezer and the kids pull them out when they’re on the way out.
