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.

Air fryer Muffins

Muffins in an air fryer? Oh yes you can.

I got a set of these wonderful little silicon cupcake / muffin liners from my daughter. They look just like the little paper ones but these can be washed after using, non stick and not only oven safe, but work well in an air fryer too! 

yea, it doesn’t take much to excite me. 

I did not make a homemade fancy concoction. I just whipped up a batch of the Martha White muffin mix. It consist of just the powder mix and a 1/2 cup of water or milk. I always use water and they are delicious. I mean, why add the extra calories of milk when water works just fine and they are just as tasty?

I filled 6 muffin cups about half way or so. I just kept adding to them until I was out of mix. 

Then I placed them in my air fryer basket. The silicon cups are more sturdy than the paper ones so no need to use a pan. 
I cooked them at 350 degrees for 8 minutes.

They turned out a little wonky but thats ok. They were still delicious just the same. Someone told me that the air flow in the air fryer will make them wopsided. (Spell check is telling me its called “lopsided” but I disagree).

Any way, I am tickled to have a new way of fixing muffins and without the mess. Sometimes I will eat two but normally I like to have one most mornings with an egg. I do not have the same thing every morning for breakfast. I like to change it up so it does not get boring. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.

My favorite breakfast is waffles. Muffins come in at a close 2nd. 
But of course, I love biscuits and gravy with sausage or bacon but I do not eat like that anymore.
What is your favorite breakfast food?
