#MuffinMonday : Apple Bran Muffins


I was browsing through some recipe books and these muffins caught my eye.  Have not used bran in muffins before, only added it in bread and since there were also apples at hand, I just had to try this out this recipe. 
These muffins are a healthy lot with apples and raisins and should there be leftovers, fret not, just warm them up in the oven toaster, and you're all set for a healthy breakfast or tea!
