Raw honey bran muffins with orange zest
These organic raw honey oat bran muffins are lightly sweetened with a hint of fresh citrus taste. These muffins are a healthy, delicious way to easily add fiber to your diet.
These rustic bran muffins are great for a quick breakfast on the go or as a snack. I replaced ordinary white sugar with organic raw honey to lend a bit of sweetness and fresh orange juice and zest to add a bit of a citrus flavor. Make these ahead of time and store them in an airtight container to enjoy throughout the week.
