Found this recipe on a box and have been making it for years! Great for bran or non-bran lovers...with or without raisins! I love with raisins...warming them up in the morning and spreading with some peanut butter! YUM!

Ingredients

3 c
unprocessed wheat bran, divided
1 c
boiling water
1 c
packed brown sugar
1/2 c
butter
2 1/2 c
whole wheat flour
2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
2
eggs, beaten
2 c
buttermilk
1 c
raisins, optional
24
paper muffin cups

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put paper muffin cups into muffin tin.
2
Mix 1 cup bran with 1 cup boiling water; stir and let water asborb into bran.
3
Measure and combine flour, baking soda and salt.
4
In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar and butter. Add the moist bran, beaten eggs, remaining 2 cups of bran, and buttermilk; mix well.
5
Add the flour, soda and salt mixture; stir until well blended. Stir in the raisins, if desired.
6
Spoon into the prepared muffin tins...I use my ice cream scoop! Bake for 15 minutes.
7
Hint...since some of us like raisins and some do not, at first I do not add raisins. I fill 12 muffin cups and then add 1 cup raisins to the remaining dough. Then fill the remainder of the cups.
