2 1/2 cups unprocessed bran
1 cup sour cream or yogurt
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt


Beat Syrup and Eggs until light and fluffy. Stir in Bran and let stand to allow Bran to soften. Fold in sour cream. Stir in remaining ingredients just until moistened. Batter should be lumpy – spoon into greased muffin tins. Bake at 400°F for 20 min. or until browned. Yield: 12 muffins. Serve warm.
