I like to snack on these muffins, they're good, and they're healthy too. Add more sugar if you want it to be sweeter, since these muffins aren't very sweet. Be careful with the milk, sometimes it can be too moist, but you'll just have to bake it for a longer period of time.

For low fat muffins these are pretty good! I changed a couple of things. I added whole wheat flour instead of regular and added a tsp of cinnamon and a tsp of vanilla. They are NOT sweet, as Jenny already said, so if you want sweeter add more sugar. They end up being 1 point on the weight watchers plan...marvelous!!!

This is an incredibly good recipe to be low fat!! I used a Braeburn apple and used half whole wheat flour, too, to get the maximum low glycemic benefit. I also always preheat my muffin oven to 500 degrees and then turn to the baking heat when I put them in. Particularly with the whole grain products, this gets them crisp while the leavening has made them fluffy and puffy. People who say this is dry or not sweet enough are probably overcooking them. Using applesauce or vinegar-milk in lieu of apple or buttermilk will also decrease the sweetness tremendously and cause them to be drier.

"Low fat" and "bran" don't have to mean flavorless, which these were, even though I tried adding more cinnamon as reviewers suggested. I recommend making the "Apple Strudel Muffins" instead, but a) replacing half the flour with oat bran, b) replacing the butter with applesauce, c) cutting the sugar in half, and d) adding a teaspoon of cinnamon. Voila! Low fat apple bran muffins that taste good, unlike these.
