Homemade muffins are my favorite breakfast. What I discovered is there are great recipes on the box of A.J. Pancake Mix, the Whole Wheat mix! Of course I added fresh eggs, milk, vegetable oil, baking powder, a little sugar,cinnamon, fruit and nuts. The "whole wheat" pancake mix actually was picked up by mistake, thinking I was buying the regular pancake mix. What a great discovery it was!
POST Raisin Bran Cereal also has a wonderful "Apple-Walnut Muffin" recipe, on the 20 ounce package of cereal.I use one large Granny Smith apple and one cup of coarsely chopped walnuts,I bake 25 minutes.

Ingredients

3/4 c
whole wheat pancake mix
1 c
all purpose flour
NOTE: FOR MUFFINS WITH RAISIN BRAN CEREAL, USE 1 & 1/2 CUPS ALL-PURPOSE FLOUR ONLY.
1 Tbsp
oil for muffins; 1/3 cup for bread recipe
1 small
container applesauce for muffins.
1
egg for muffins; 2 eggs for bread.
1 c
fat free milk for muffins; 1/4 cup milk for bread.
1 Tbsp
baking powder for muffins; only 1 & 1/2 tsp. for bread.
1/3 c
light brown sugar for muffins; 1/2 cup gran.sugar for bread.
1 tsp
cinnamon for either recipe.
1 c
chopped granny smith apple
1 c
coarsely chopped walnuts
or two mashed ripe bananas, and optional 1/2 cup chopped walnuts for bread.
quick bread also includes baking soda

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Full directions are on the box of whole wheat pancake mix, by A.J.
THESE ARE WONDERFUL RECIPES, WHICH I WILL USE MANY TIMES. THEY ARE QUICK, EASY AND PERFECT.
2
The Apple-Walnut Muffins are made in several steps: First you measure the dry ingredients into a large bowl, and set aside.
3
In a medium sized bowl, mix one egg, one cup milk, one tablespoon oil, one small or individual-size serving of "Natural" apple sauce (unsweetened); and blend together.
4
Measure out one and one/half cups of POST Raisin Bran Cereal, and stir into the liquid ingredients.
5
The Granny Smith apple needs to be cored, peeled and shredded. I prefer to use one large G.S. Apple. I also use 1 cup of chopped walnuts, coarsely chopped.
6
Combine the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients in the large bowl and stir in the apple and walnuts.
7
Have a twelve-cup Medium-size muffin pan sprayed with oil, and an ice-cream scoop also sprayed with oil ready. The oven should be preheated to 425 degrees.
8
Scoop the batter into the muffin tin and bake for at least 25 minutes. Remove tin and let rest on the counter on a cake rack for a few minutes, then loosen muffins. Enjoy one (or two) while warm with a nice hot cup of coffee for breakfast each morning! We do!

Using the recipes on a Pancake Mix and on the POST Raisin Bran Cereal box (20 oz.size) to make either a Banana Nut Bread or Apple-Walnut Raisin Bran Muffins. I've combined the directions, and it might be confusing to some people. It is just my way of keeping a record of these wonderful recipes for a personal cookbook. I didn't wish to copy each recipe exactly and take credit for each one. They are great as is. The only changes I've made are to increase the apple and walnuts in the muffins, and the baking time by five minutes as I used the larger size Granny Smith Apple and more walnuts than the box directions suggested.
