Anyone have experience with black strap molasses and adding it to a bran muffin recipe? Does it help the fiber content and taste? Looking to make dark bran muffins, the kind that are as dark as chocolate but with no raisins. Suggestions welcomed.

I don't think blackstrap is very good tasting.  No fiber that i know of. But it has iron.

Thanks for responding. I see a lot of recipes online but can't seem to find one for those dark-colored bran muffins. Seems the darker they are the more bran they have in them and more tasty they are coming out of a hot oven (with a pat of butter on them of course!). I shall keep looking.

Try plain molasses--although it has a higher sugar content which isn't ideal for a diabetic.  Bran itself isn't considered renal friendly.

Something like this? https://cozywalls.com/2012/05/04/blackstrap-molasses-bran-muffins-honestly/

Can I just say... those look AWESOME! They're dense like cupcakes. And the idea of peanut butter on them is also really good... I might have to make some myself.

THANK YOU! Those are what I am talking about! Like K&S said, bran isn't exactly renal -friendly and molasses isn't diabetic-friendly but when he's desperate to feel the uh, "end results of fiber", my husband will eat oatmeal cream pies. Those do the trick but I thought maybe bran muffins might be a little healthier or at least offer him some variety. You know life has changed when we get excited over a recipe with bran in it.  :bow;

I would think that one of those muffins and a strong cup of coffee should keep things going just fine...  :clap;

I would think that a nice bowl of oatmeal on a fairly regular basis would have more fiber effect than bran.  Oatmeal is a soluble fiber whereas bran is insoluble.  Both are important but I think soluble has the edge. Insoluble needs to be taken with a lot liquid.

Not today as I am 'in-patient', but once home I will make these as I like a good muffin with either coffee, tea, or a plain glass of milk.

I do make myself oatmeal, just not every day.  So it would be easy to add these muffins to my list of handy yet 'not bad' foods I can have.

Thanks Ladies.

That's exactly what I've told him. I think a small cup of oatmeal nuked in the microwave would be the "way to go" but he doesn't want to have to add milk to it, as he'd have to include that in his daily fluid intake limit.  ::)  I say whatever...

I DON'T get excited over bran anything. Not that I hate it. Because it is not so renal friendly, I just will deal as little with bran as possible and avoidable. I am holding onto my renal diet, except for very occasional small cheats at times to moderate my potassium, or Kryptonite. I am so phobic of it getting to a blood level of roughly 4.5 and up.
