Healthy Oat Bran Muffins

These healthy oat bran muffins are vegan, gluten-free, and packed with fiber so you should not feel guilty at all by eating a few!  They are perfectly sweet and taste amazing with a side of coffee or almond milk.  You can eat this for breakfast, brunch, or even as a satisfying snack!  You may also substitute the nuts or raisins for other ingredients (dried cranberries, chocolate chips, blueberries) or omit them entirely.  These muffins will turn out super crispy on the outside, yet moist and soft on the inside!
