Apple Bran Muffins

I was looking for a lower calorie bran muffin recipe last night and when I couldn’t find anything. Everything was either too high in sugar, carbs or calories. I finally decided to take matter into my own hands and tossed a few things together. I’m happy to say that the muffins turned out amazing. If you don’t have any natural wheat bran, you may substitute with oat bran. These muffins are very filling and incredibly tasty.. The recipe is below.
