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.

    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!
