Whole Wheat Bran Muffins

Skylor and I are in the process of using up all of our pantry/food storage food so we are getting a little creative with our meals πŸ˜‰
I was sick of eating random stuff/toast for breakfast so I whipped up these bran muffins on Sunday and I’ve eaten like most of them so far haha (I’m a freak, who even likes bran muffins that much?!) But they are pretty tasty, filling and only have 160 calories per serving. So yes. I’m lovingggg them!
I had this box of bran cereal and desperately needed to find a way to use it because I wasn’t down to eat it like normal for some reason. I blame pregnancy.
Anywho, if you have some bran flakes that you want to get out of your pantry, this is the perfect solution! They’re so easy to make and you can freeze them for up to 3 months.
