Bran Muffins....what can I say? I love them! These are a favorite in our household! I have a couple recipes for bran muffins. One is a "cheater" recipe using Raisin Bran cereal. The other is one that uses actual wheat or oat bran. I love them both! Here is my "cheater" recipe!
1 1/2 cups raisin bran
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tblsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine raisin bran and milk. Let set until soft or about 5 minutes.
Add brown sugar, egg, oil, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon.
Combine wet and dry ingredients. Stir. Don't overmix.
Fill lined muffin cups 2/3 full.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
Serve as breakfast, a snack, or anything in between!
Great with a thick spread of peanut butter on top... just because peanut butter makes everything better! :)
Note: If you aren't a fan of raisins, you can simply substitute bran flakes for raisin bran.
