      Thanks Katie, it’s so hard to make a muffin look enticing, but I think the beautiful purple blackberries help.

    I have muffins on the brain and been making them all week – to the tune of 2 pounds gained. But now – I’m greedy and I want your warm, tender muffins, too.

      I’m systematically adding every fruit and nut combination I can think of to bran muffins, just trying to vary them enough that we don’t get sick of them, they’re a staple around here.

      Thanks, I’ve decided that much as I love to make muffins, they aren’t naturally photogenic, I guess I got lucky with these.

    LOVE bran muffins. Love them better than soft white flour ones. Hope you are settling in well out there in CA!

    Your muffins have risen so nicely! I think you mentioned in a previous post that oat flour made for very tender muffins. I need to give these a try soon!

      They did rise really well, it was so satisfying to peek into the oven and see that! The oat flour is a great one to experiment with, I think you’ll love it.
