Maple Pumpkin Bran MUffins 1

Maple Pumpkin Bran Muffins

Serves: 6

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was really nice! My mother and her boyfriend came down to help me get my Christmas tree. We also had a nice lunch out and did a little shopping! It was very nice! Sunday was spent getting ready for this week, studying, chatting with a great new friend and relaxing!! Overall, it was a great weekend! It was much needed for sure!!

Today’s recipe was another one that came out of a craving about 1.5 months ago! haha (yes, I do have recipes on hand forever  before I share them!) I had a craving for a bran muffin, but since I can’t eat wheat I went in search of a replacement! The rice bran worked perfectly! Feel free to use regular wheat bran though!

I hope you enjoy! Have a great Monday! 🙂

These were amazing! I had a huge craving for a bran muffin (which I can’t eat) and this recipe definitely satisfied that craving! The maple syrup in them makes the recipe! They were moist and soft, yet slightly dense like a true bran muffin! Plus they were perfect for an afternoon snack with some greek yogurt! The only thing I would change is that I would add some raisins in next time because raisin bran muffins are the best!

*What is your favorite kind of muffin?

*What did you do over the weekend?

*Do you have a lot of people on your holiday shopping list?

  • These look fantastic. Any recipe that includes maple in it is a win! Seriously, I've been obsessed with adding maple to so many baked goods lately. I can't seem to get enough. Is it bad that sometimes Ill have a spoonful? I kind of feel like Buddy the Elf =X

    hi Sarah! hope you are well.. do you think this would work with Apple sauce in place of the pumpkin? I'm craving Apple cinnamon getting deeper into winter!

  • I can practically taste the pumpkin through my monitor! Love how simple and clean this recipe is. It reminds me of some Crustless Pumpkin Pie Bites I made recently. Definitely trying these soon!
