Muffins are good to have for breakfast and snacks. It is even better if you have it with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee. One particular type that I like to have for breakfast is Raisin Bran Muffin. Since bran is high in fiber, I figured that this can help control my digestion. This Raisin Bran Muffin Recipe is the only one I trust.
Aside from having high fiber content, I like Raisin Bran Muffin because it is not too sweet. I do not feel guilty even if I had more than one piece. It also fills me up quite a bit, and keeps me energized until lunch time. That means no food cravings in between breakfast and lunch. By the way, this Raisin Bran Muffin Recipe asks for 3 tablespoons of raisin. Add more raisins instead of sugar, if you like it sweeter.
Did you know the secret to moist muffins? It is actually the vegetable oil. I think that the amount of oil in this Raisin Bran Muffin Recipe is enough, but you can add a tablespoon or two if you want it moister.
