Hot Bran Muffins Every Morning

bran muffins 

In the past I have hated Bran Muffins. Loathed them! So, when my friend Emily told me she had a great recipe that you can make each morning, I tried them. For my family…not me of course! Being the good mother I am I was taking a sacrificial bite and so my kids would try them. Holy cow! Delicious!

You can make the dough and then refrigerate it for up to 6 weeks and make fresh muffins each morning!

Here is the recipe:

  • I have a recipe similar to this that is kept in the fridge. Have you tried microwaving just one muffin? They turn out super light and fluffy and SO much better than in the oven, plus if you only need one muffin it’s great! Just spray the inside of a mug or small dish with cooking spray, fill 1/2 to 2/3 with muffin mixture, then microwave for about 75 seconds. Done! You may have to play around with the time to get it right for your microwave or you’ll get a too hard or too doughy muffin.

    Fabulous recipes will try this week. Your blogg is wonderful and inspiring. Loved how you are teaching your children the true spirit of christmas and family. Do not be discouraged by negative people and comments. It just shows you have disturbed the comfortable making them think about their own indulgence and excess. Truly inspiring! Well done from across the pond.
