I call these Tim's bran muffins because they are the only healthy muffins I can get into my picky Tim. Adapted from my mom's old recipe so I have been able to cut some of the fat and sugar down. They are moist, delicious and high in fiber!

    If you would like to change things up a little when you are filling the tins, fill about 1/2 way, add a teaspoon of low sugar orange marmalade or whatever jam you like, and top with more batter. Bake and enjoy a little surprise in the middle of each!
