Ooey gooey honey bran muffins. Just like the ones from Mimi’s Cafe. Perfectly sweet, a little chewy and the perfect breakfast treat.



For the glaze:

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp water

For the muffins:

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tbsp molasses
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup wheat bran
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Spray and grease two JUMBO muffin tins with cooking spray. (This recipe will make 6-8 jumbo muffins. If you want 12 jumbo muffins then 1.5x the recipe).
  3. Combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
  4. Distribute the glaze evenly among 6-8 tins in the muffin pans. About 1 1/2 tbsp per muffin tin.
  5. For the muffin batter, whisk together brown sugar, honey, molasses, oil, water, sour cream and the egg. Whisk until the mixture is homogeneous and smooth.
  6. In a separate medium sized bowl combine dry ingredients.
  7. Fold the dry ingredient mixture into the wet mixture until no flour streaks remain.
  8. Divide batter evenly among the 6-8 muffin tin spots (be careful to only fill them halfway full, otherwise they will spill over the pan and make a mess in your oven)
  9. Bake the muffins in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick entered in the center comes out clean.
  10. Immediately line a cooling rack with parchment paper and carefully flip the muffin tins over, allowing the muffins to slide out onto the parchment paper.
  11. Let cool slightly and then eat warm with a pat of butter.
