Mimi's Cafe 'Honey Bran Muffins' {Copycat Recipe}

Have you ever tried the Honey Bran Muffins at Mimi's Cafe?

OMG is all I can say, and I never say OMG.

They are ooey, gooey and full of Bran goodness - totally leaving you wanting to devour enjoy a few more. I discovered a copycat recipe for Mimi's Cafe Honey Bran Muffins and couldn't help but sharing it. This is like a PSA y'all - a Muffin PSA.

Great part about these muffins is that they are not only good for your tastebuds - they are also packed with healthiness. Like 3 cups of Figs and 1 cup of Bran - so much goodness that it makes it hard to tell the kiddos they can only have one while I'm enjoying my 2nd. ;)

I'm totally not exaggerating when I tell you that our boys, ages almost 4 and almost 6, chose these Honey Bran Muffins over Halloween Candy last night. I'm sure they would of preferred me to not stare at them while they were eating, but I couldn't help and relish in the fact my boys were packing in figs and bran like it was candy. Awesome stuff right there!!
