The Great Bran Muffin Hunt
Hi Chicago Hounds,
I just moved to the area and, so far, my search for a great bran muffin -- rich flavor, branny texture, not overly dense -- has come up dry (so to speak), both on this board and out in the world. Even the gargantuan Whole Foods in Lincoln Park is strangely lacking. Any suggestions?
I live in Logan Square but love the muffins in a serious way, and am happy to travel for good bran.
When I lived in Philadelphia years ago, I loved the bran muffins at Vie de France. I gather that they have only one outlet around here now, in the Woodfield Mall, which I haven't been to -- and it's not exactly handy to Logan Square. But the muffins were seriously flavorful in those days -- good luck!
