For my first ever Bran Muffin experience, I was expecting to be horrified and sworn off Bran Muffins for life due to the unsavoury reports you often see on tv. But i was pleasantly suprised! The chocolate adds deliciousness, obviously, and is the perfect amount. And for those who have never attempted Bran Muffins, its honestly just like you have some descicated coconut in with the chocolate. Overall: YUM!!!

Love these! They are good just they way they are but I use buttermilk instead of milk, whole wheat flour instead of regular, a whole cup of chocolate chips and a whole cup of sugar instead of 1/2. And they are only approx 5 points for weight watchers too
