Whole Wheat, Oatmeal & Raisin Muffins

I love these muffins.  As a fitness trainer, I advocate eating every 3 hours so I start my morning with one of these because it's a complete mini-meal.  And they are so delicious you will have a hard time eating just one.  I also have a hard time keeping them in the house.  My kids gobble them up like candy and I find myself with NONE!  They are totally worth making.

1 cup whole wheat flour
¼ c. sugar
¼ c. packed brown sugar
2 Tbls. untoasted wheat germ
2 Tbls. wheat bran
