Multi Grain Raisin Walnut Bran Muffins ~ healthy fiber filled bran muffins that help you start the day with lots of energy. 

I hate to be predictable.

But I need to drop a few pounds.

I don’t know how it happened.

I swear I wasn’t gorging on holiday sweets.

It was only a handful of chips here.

And a truffle or two there.

You too?  Not to worry, I’ve got a plan.

    Hehe, I’m totally with you, even a bit disgusted with myself which is wonderful motivation to get out and exercise and eat delicious healthy muffins like these, who says healthy can’t be tasty?

      Even though I didn’t eat all of the holiday treats I made for the blog, they all had to be tested….thoroughly tested…

    I agree about the flavor, and I think the texture of bran muffins being especially good. They have a bad reputation I think because of the hockey puck restaurant versions. No hockey pucks here!

    I am SO WITH YOU on that. I only remember sitting down to eat a few actual meals, but somehow…between the grabbing of the chocolate cookies and the snacking on the go….um….(sigh)
    these muffins make me incredibly happy. call me weird, but bran muffins are perhaps my favorite muffin, just because i love the flavors, but also i like that i feel like i’m doing something good for myself. i’ve done raisin, but not walnut too, so i’m looking forward to these showing up hot from my oven. book. marked. :)

    These sound delicious, Sue. I’ve been off almost all grains for the past few days, just to reset my sugar cravings. (I, for one, DID over indulge this year – yikes!) and holy smokes, you just kicked the cravings into overdrive. Your muffins always look perfect.

      I’m interested to hear how you do with the no grain thing. I would have a hard time avoiding all grains but I have a feeling it would be very invigorating.

      I swear, when it’s all said and done, I’m embarrassed to say that it’s chips that do me in. Every time. ;)
