I just printed this recipe. I noticed there was no mention of flour, just bran. Is flour not required?

I JUST finished making this recipe and it is AWFUL!! I put the muffins in the oven and some of the "batter" just exploded out of the pan and is now on the bottom of the oven. Watery batter. Not good at all.
