Oven-Ready Bran Muffins

Cherie Hammond


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!

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


1Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put paper muffin cups into muffin tin.
2Mix 1 cup bran with 1 cup boiling water; stir and let water asborb into bran.
3Measure and combine flour, baking soda and salt.
4In a separate bowl, mix together the sugar and butter. Add the moist bran, beaten eggs, remaining 2 cups of bran, and buttermilk; mix well.
5Add the flour, soda and salt mixture; stir until well blended. Stir in the raisins, if desired.
6Spoon into the prepared muffin tins...I use my ice cream scoop! Bake for 15 minutes.
7Hint...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.
