Note: I've been trying to find ways to make healthier food that the whole family will eat. This morning, I concocted this recipe from another one I found. I know, I know, can something that healthy possibly taste that good? Just ask my kids. They love them! Josie, our muffin-hating daughter ate more than anyone else. Jerry has already requested more. These are very moist bran muffins and with the cinnamon topping, you can imagine that you're eating a high fat, fiber-free muffin loaded with sugar.

Now to try them on Daddy when he comes home :o) Keith is slowly coming around to the idea of whole wheat flour and is a very picky muffin eater. Enjoy!
