They are full of Greek yogurt with honey, sour cream, avocado and applesauce. And more honey. And brown sugar. Seriously. But they aren't overly sweet, they just have a nice pleasant taste.
Here's what you need to make 24 large muffins:
1 cup of Greek Yogurt with Honey
1 cup of Sour Cream
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup of brown sugar, not packed
1/3 cup of applesauce. I use homemade so there is no extra sugar
1/3 cup of Canola Oil (approximate) What you do is put 1/3 cup applesauce in a measuring cup and add the mashed avocado. Then pour in your oil until the liquid reaches the 1 cup mark
2 cups bran. Buy the kind that says it is for making muffins
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2-3 Tbsp. liquid honey
1 cup raisins (or blueberries)
You'll notice in the picture that there is no honey, flour or sour cream showing. I forgot to put the flour in the picture but there's no honey or sour cream in it because I didn't know I was going to add them until I started making the batter! That's right. I didn't have enough Greek yogurt so I added a cup of sour cream. And I added honey at the end because the batter was too dry. A serendipity moment...
Here's what to do. You're going to need 3 bowls, one should be fairly big.

|Yogurt and Sour Cream Mixture|
|Mixing it all together|
If the batter is too dry, add some more oil or applesauce.
Now coat the raisins in flour by putting them in a small dish of flour, giving them a good shake then toss them into a strainer to shake the excess flour off. This prevents the raisins from clumping together when you add them to the muffin mixture.
Using paper muffin liners, line 2 dozen large muffin cups and drop the batter into each with a large spoon.
Bake at 350' for 25-30 minutes. Mine in the photo below cooked about 5 minutes too long but they were still amazingly delicious!
