  • Print

Ingredients

  • 2 cups wheat bran cereal (e.g., Nabisco 100% Bran or Kellog’s All Bran)
  • 1┬╝ cups milk
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup turbinado sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 optional ingredient (select from below)

Optional Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup craisins
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini (my favorite)
  • 1 cup shredded carrot

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and prepare a 12-muffin pan with cooking spray.
  2. In large bowl, combine bran and milk; let stand 5 minutes.
  3. In medium bowl, combine next four ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda); set aside.
  4. Slice the butter and microwave in a glass measuring cup for 40 seconds. Mix into the bran mixture along with the egg and optional ingredient. Stir in flour mixture just until blended.
  5. Spoon batter into muffin pan cups. Bake 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out mostly clean.

COOK’S NOTES: The optional ingredients listed above are tried and true. Next up to try is 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (with zucchini?).
