Perri’s Best Bran Muffins

Yield: about 20 muffins
Time needed: 30 minutes

This recipe makes me wonder why I have seldom eaten bran muffins. They are delicious! Maybe because of the buttermilk. Nor do they have the heavy quality I have previously associated with bran muffins; they are delightfully light. My only problem is I can’t stop eating them.
