I'm not sure where this recipe is from except that it is in my mom's recipe box. I have been using wheat bran on my yogurt at breakfast and have been meaning to use some to make bran muffins. I finally decided to use it when I realized that I had this recipe. These muffins were VERY good. They are not the typical sweet muffin that you would get in a bakery, but these muffins have a lovely "scent" of maple syrup that makes it just right. These are good to start your day with some fiber or to go along with soup. Just try and enjoy!
Top-Notch Bran Muffins

1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup oil
Raisins (optional, I didn't use)
