bran muffins1

There is nothing better than fresh-baked muffins in the mornings. These easy bran muffins are a quick, yummy, and satisfying breakfast during the week or on the weekends.

My Mom used to fix these muffins when I was in High School and I loved them for a quick breakfast on my way out the door. I have made this recipe for over 20 years and it reminds me of home. This recipe also is a great source of bran and very kid friendly. 

When mixing up these muffins, I will use a large cooking pot since my mixing bowls are not large enough to hold all of the ingredients. I combine my cereal and raisins and then add in the remaining dry ingredients.
