Yes, the Apple Oat Bran Muffins and the Banana Oat Bran Muffins bake up
with a wonderfully soft, moist texture.  They contain only oat bran, no
flour at all.  I should have said this in my original posting, several
people have questioned me about this.  The applesauce and the banana add
a lot of moisture to these recipes and the baking powder expand them
enough so they are not too dense.  I know this might seem unlikely to
many people, that you can make a soft muffin with oat bran only.  But 
these recipes meet that requirement.  They are easy to make and really
good!   Give them a try.
