    This recipe brings back so many great memories for me! I used to make it all the time when I was in junior high--and that was in 1960. My dad was a salesman for Kellogg's Cereals so we always had plenty of cereal in the house. I loved these muffins which originally were made with All-Bran. I switched to raisin bran because I liked raisins. I'd really forgotten about the muffins until I saw this recipe.

    I love these muffins, I also use the raisin bran, they seem to be moister than with the All Bran. Thanks for posting. I haven't seen my recipe in awhile. nice to have it again
