CLASSIC BRAN MUFFINS

Committed to eating more fiber, I plan to make a batch of these muffins each week and then to freeze most of them. Each night that I don't have fresh muffins, I will remove two muffins from the freezer and place them in a plastic tub to thaw overnight. The next day, I will eat the thawed muffins as a treat, not necessarily for breakfast.

Note that doubling the recipe would be a cinch.
