Bran Muffins
I’m recipe crazy these days!
I promise my crafting days are not over!  I’ve got a couple of projects up my sleeve!
But there’s just something about summers that makes me want to cook for my family…
I like the kids to eat healthy when they are at home, so I bake.  And bake.  And bake…
This week it was a classic:


I think almost every family must have this recipe tucked into their recipe boxes somewhere!
I can remember eating this muffin as a kid!  And now my kids eat them and love them!
The best part about this recipe is that the batter can stay in your fridge for up to 2 weeks.  (I like to use it up in a week though.)  So you can have fresh baked muffins everyday if you want!  Awesome!


Here’s How-To:

  3. Then add vanilla, baking soda, salt and raisins, to the egg/oil/sugar mix.
  4. Add bran mixture, combine.
  5. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder, then add this to the muffin mixture. Gently combine.
  6. Fill muffin cups about 2/3 full.

This batter can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. So you can bake as big or small batches as you would like! All together, you can get about 24 good sized muffins from this batter.
