We love muffins at our house! With our new years resolutions we are recommitting ourselves to eating a little more healthy. This was a great way to start the day and they taste so good.

They are really good with butter and honey on top which is maybe not the most healthy things. That’s why little is the operative term in the previous sentences.



Mimi’s Cafe Honey Bran Muffin Copycat



  • 3 tablespoons all-natural cane sugar regular sugar is fine
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • pinch of salt


Mimi’s Cafe Honey Bran Muffin Copycat


  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons molasses
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil 
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons orange zest 
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup wheat bran
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt



  1. Preheat your oven to 350° and spray muffin tin with spray oil.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk your glaze ingredients together and set aside. If using all natural cane sugar, whisk for a bit to break down the larger granules.
  3. In a separate bowl add dry ingredients; flour, wheat bran, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and whisk to combine, set aside. In a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, mix brown sugar, honey, molasses, and oil and mix on medium speed until smooth.
  4. Add egg, water, cream and orange zest and mix until incorporated, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Slowly add your dry ingredients with mixer on low speed until mixed.
  5. Stir glaze and using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop about 2/3 of a tablespoon of glaze into bottom of each muffin cup, spreading it around and up the sides, this will ensure that distribution of the glaze is even and gets all over that muffin.
  6. Using a medium or large cookie scoop, scoop muffin batter into muffin cups, about 2/3 full, careful not to overfill them, they do overflow a bit, but you don’t want them overflowing onto the bottom of your oven. Bake for 20 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.
  7. As soon as they are done, line a cooling rack with a piece of parchment paper and carefully flip the muffin tin over, allowing those beautiful bran muffins to escape. Eat immediately or cool and reheat.
