I have adjusted this recipe over the years, beginning back in 1977 with the one from the raisin bran box, and changing ingredients as different food and health trends came into being. I am really satisfied with this one now as it stands, so it's time to post it.
You can use any type of raisin bran cereal, even the all-natural organic kind found in health food stores.
I love this batter because you can keep it in the refrigerator and make 6 or 12 muffins at a time, if you don't have a lot of people to gobble them up too fast. The batter will keep up to 2 weeks.
