Grammie’s Bran Muffins

Not a day goes by that I don’t think about my Grammie. Memories of the time we spent together cross my mind daily. Thoughts of Groveton ice-cream bars, the scent of melting butter on homemade toast, chewy molasses cookies, boxes of Apple Jacks(notice how these memories all involve food?!!) all remind me of the wonderful grandmother she was and always will be. I missed her deeply last weekend, and decided I’d cook a batch of bran muffins in her memory. After all, these were just one of her many secret recipes!! If you’re looking for a healthier muffin, look no further! These are full of flavor, fiber, and nutrients. A muffin that fills me up without slowing me down? Yes please! Here’s to Grammie Rowden, I love you.
