Tips For Making This Recipe

Sift Your Dry Ingredients

Sift your dry ingredients to remove clumps! This way, you won’t need to overmix the batter and risk getting dense muffins.

Jazz Up Your All-Bran Muffins

Warm, freshly baked bran muffins are delicious with vegan butter, but you can also create different variations by stirring in chopped walnuts, non-dairy chocolate chips, or raisins in the muffin batter. You can also sprinkle them with sunflower seeds before baking for some crunch.

Storage Tips

These All Bran muffins keep well in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. You can also wrap the leftover muffins individually and store them in the fridge for a week. Or, for longer storage, place them in a freezer-safe container and freeze them for up to 2 months. To serve, thaw your homemade muffins overnight and microwave them for a few seconds.

Vegan Bran Muffins Recipe FAQs 

Why are my All-bran Muffins so dense?

It might be from an overmixed batter. Remember to stir the dry and wet ingredients together just until combined. 

Do I have to use All-Bran cereal in this vegan bran muffin recipe?

This recipe has not been tested with other bran cereals, so if you use another type, you might need to adjust the quantity used to ensure the muffins’ texture will come out as expected. 

Can you substitute wheat flour for all-purpose flour in All Bran muffins?

Yes! Feel free to replace all-purpose flour with wheat flour or combine the two.

How do you tell if your bran muffins are done?

The All Bran muffins are done when you insert a toothpick in their centers and it comes out clean.

Do All-Bran muffins freeze well?

Yes. These delicious muffins can be stored in a freezer-safe container for up to 2 months. Just thaw the frozen muffins overnight and warm them up in the microwave before serving.

  1. I made these today made a few adjustments by adding an extra egg, one mashed banana, shredded pears and a diced apple with walnuts for topping.

    1. Oh wow, those sound like delicious additions to these muffins! I’m always switching it up. I’ve done pumpkin and berry but never apples and pears. I’m sure it was super yummy! Enjoy!

  2. I just got through making these. I changed the recipe a little. I used regular milk (2%) instead of almond milk and added rasins. My husband says they are very good and I agree.

    1. Thanks Andrea! These are some of my favorite muffins, and I agree that raisins would be a great addition.

  3. These look delishI would love it if you would come and link this up at my link party

  4. Since you talked about these before I have been looking forward to the recipe. I will be making these sometime very soon. We need some healthy stuff around here. Good thoughts and prayers still headed your way.

    1. I’m so happy to hear that you were looking forward to them! and also that I could come through on my promise 🙂

    1. It’s true, Paula.. they’re great with breakfast, a snack, lunch, dinner… you name it… they’re yum all day!

  5. YUM! Bran muffins are a favorite of mine, hubby not so much so when I make these, they’re MINE…. ALL mine….

    1. You’re SO lucky!! Wifey loves them just as much as I do, so it’s a battle to the last muffin!

  6. Bran muffins are one of my favorite comfort foods. Lots of butter is a requirement! I used to bake them a lot as a kid, but I haven’t in a while, so thanks for the reminder. I’m going to make a batch so I have an easy breakfast on hand for me and my son. 🙂

    1. i hadn’t had them in a long time myself… was so glad to have been reminded of my love for these muffins. You should check out my Honey Vanilla Protein Butter to put on these… it’s aMAZE-yum!

  7. Typically I’m not a healthy snack lover, but these do sound yummy! I’m sure my four year old would love it if I stocked our freezer with these for busy mornings! I’ll make sure to give them a try!

    1. Thanks Kiersten! Bed rest really was boring and started to get pretty depressing… especially with my mind having so much time to think about all the what-ifs. Luckily I’ve been able to get up and out of the house the last couple days but still taking it easy for the next couple weeks.
