Raisin Bran Muffins

This will be a short post. I’m tired and can barely hold my eyes open. But I wanted to share a delicious recipe with you all. This recipe is so easy, your kids can make it. 

My husband has been looking for some healthy bran muffins. We have not had any luck finding any that are not full of preservatives or sugar. Nether could I find any bran mix to make my own. 

I started searching around on line and found an easy recipe that used Raisin Bran cereal. 
This recipe called for a half of cup of sugar but I used a little less of the calling because I figured there was enough sugar in the cereal. 

I have to say, this was one of the easiest muffin recipes I have found and the muffins were delicious.


3 Cups Raisin Bran Cereal
1 1/4 cup of Milk
1 1/ 2 cup of Self rising flour
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Pour the milk and cereal in to a mixing bowl and let it set for a minute or two so the cereal will get soft. 
- In another bowl, mix together the flour and sugar.
- Add egg and oil to the cereal mix and stir to combined.
- Add the flour and sugar in and mix until combined.
- Pour batter into lined or greased muffin tins. (Should make 12).

Bake for 10-15 mins or until done. 
Stick a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean, they are done. 
You do not want to over cook them or they may become dry.

These muffins are good to freeze then thaw on counter top or microwave. 
I love these muffins heated a little in the microwave with a cup of coffee.

  1. I just saved this recipe. I will try it and use stevia instead of granulated sugar. I have been looking for a bran muffin recipe, too. I will have to use egg whites rather than 1 egg, too. I'll let you know how they turn out. xo Diana

  3. Looks and sounds good, we seldom have muffins, but I do like them, and I do appreciate it when someone thinks of healthy foods. Sending love across the muddy South Fork.
