Best Bran Muffins

The Ula Cafe was walking distance from my JP condo, and they featured a "muffin of the day" on their FB feed that often motivated a morning stroll for me in summers. Nowadays, we make our own at home, and this recipe is fail-proof: we've don blueberry bran, pear pecan and, here, apricot almond. The buttermilk and honey make these tangy and sweet in all the right ways. Happy morning to you!
