Chocolate Chip Bran Muffins

The cold I had in November was pretty major - I was at home sick for an entire week. Coughing so frequently didn't make my stomach feel great either, so my breakfast/lunch usually consisted of a soft-boiled egg and toast and maybe some canned soup (yuck!). by day seven, I wasn't exactly hungry, but I wanted to eat something relatively healthy and filling.

I was suddenly craving bran muffins, and Meredith fed that craving. She even threw in some chocolate chips for good measure.

  3. I just ordered some organic wheat bran so as soon as that package arrives I wm going to try this. Love the choco chip addition--good job, Meredith!

  4. Ooh, intriguing, I did a cake with bran flakes in earlier this week actually, it tasted mighty wholesome. I do find it a little odd though that you were craving bran when under the weather!

    Hope you're feeling better :)
