Healthy Bran Muffins

Categories > Breakfast, Dairy Free, Vegetarian

Bran muffins have a reputation for being tasteless, but we think these are pretty damn delicious, thank you very much.

Applesauce, cinnamon, almond milk, and minimal sugar provide plenty of flavor.

Make them even tastier by spreading almond or peanut butter on one, which will also add the protein and healthy fats you need to turn it into more of a meal (or filling snack).
