This is a great recipe but I tweaked it a bit to make it just a little healthier. I used all whole wheat pastry flour instead a blend of white and whole wheat flours. I reduced the canola oil to half and substituted half cup of unsweetened applesauce for the remainder of the oil. ( I also doubled the recipe) I used all egg whites instead of whole eggs and I substituted Splenda brown sugar blend instead of brown sugar. I used half Flax seed meal for half of the bran and I reduced the nuts and chocolate chips to half . The muffins were so moist and tasty, you'll never miss the other half! I thought that although this is a GREAT TASTING recipe, It was not nearly as healthy as it could have been. I would also like to note that nutritional values of this recipe have also changed because of the substitutions. I did not bother to figure it out because unless you're planning on eating 3 or 4 of these beauties, the calorie count won't matter much. Most likely, a serving is 1 or 2 muffins, add a peice of fruit and a cuppa and you're good to go!
