Preheat oven to 325°F and spray a 12-cup muffin tin. Mix buttermilk, oil, honey, egg, and zest in a small bowl. Mix bran, flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. 

Step 1


Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix it just until it's all mixed together. It's okay if there are still some flour streaks visible. Fold the berries in slowly.

Step 2

Quickly divide batter into 12 muffin cups. On each muffin top, sprinkle turbinado sugar. Bake muffins for 20 minutes, rotating pan halfway through for even browning. 

Step 3
