Delicious Bran Muffins

I love, love making this Bran muffin recipe and then sticking the muffins in the freezer for easy snacking or for throwing in my husband’s lunch! This recipe is also quite adaptable to your specific tastes. I often replace the all-purpose flour for whole wheat flour. While the chocolate chips can easily be switched out for blueberries, raisins or even cranberries.
