Raisin Bran Muffins





Don't you hate throwing away all those crumbs at the bottom of the cereal bag?  I do.  I'm not that thrifty in lots of other areas, but I hate paying for crumbs. Recently I started saving up my Raisin Bran crumbs (we get the Malto-Meal kind in the big bags), and I looked for a recipe to use them in.  And I found one!  Got this from allrecipes.com.  This recipe makes two dozen thick, not-too-sweet bran muffins. They are a hit with my whole family!


2 C Raisin Bran, crushed
1 1/2 C milk
2 eggs
1/2  C shortening
1 C flour
1 C whole wheat flour
5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 C sugar
extra raisins if you want them

Mix cereal and milk in large bowl. Let sit a minute or two minutes to soften.  Add eggs and shortening and mix well.  Combine dry ingredients and stir into batter until just combined.  Bake at 400° in greased or paper-lined regular muffin pans for 20 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test.  Cool completely before eating, or they will crumble. (But they're good crumbly, too!)

  1. Sounds good to me. I often make bran muffins with the All Bran cereal. I like rasins in most anything, but my family is a little pickier about where I put rasins.


    Yes, come! We can have a big cookout! I'd love it!

    I'll have to spend more time checking on how things are going in your world, but I did want to pop in quickly and say hello.
