TV commercials that focus on food are the worst for me. I watch it, crave it, want to make it. This week bran muffins were showing up and after some contemplation, I realized I hadn’t made or eaten bran muffins in years, like 15 or 16 years. What’s up with that? They used to be one of my favorite muffins.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what I would be baking today. These bran muffins are easy to make, contain healthy ingredients, and are only 125 calories per muffin.
What I love about this recipe is that it starts with bran flakes cereal. We usually have a box of raisin bran in the cupboard so it’s a twofer for me – bran and raisins. The recipe originally measured the bran flakes and the raisins separately, but I was too lazy to separate the raisins from the bran in the cereal so I just measured them together (2 1/4 cups cereal instead of 2 cups bran and 1/4 cup raisins).
