Bran Muffins may not be your top pick of muffins to make, but this recipe will change that forever! I have been making these bran muffins for years and they are by far the best tasting bran muffin I have ever tasted. They are moist, buttery, and sweet and hard to stop eating. This recipe makes a lot of batter, and you can keep it in the fridge for up to two weeks and have fresh muffins whenever you want!
Serve these bran muffins with fruit and milk or yogurt for a complete breakfast. They are also great as snacks. This recipe makes a lot and so I always freeze them. Pop one in the microwave for 20-30 seconds and you have a warm and delicious little muffin that tastes as fresh as the day you made it.
One of the main ingredients in these muffins is bran. Bran is the outer portion of a grain and it is rich in fiber, vitamins and omega fats. Because bran has so much fiber, these muffins are packed with fiber which can be really helpful for kids who don’t eat very much or are more picky. Most kids don’t get enough fiber everyday, and these muffins are a delicious way to help your kids (and you!) to get more fiber in your diet.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Boil 1 cup of water. Mix boiling water and 2 cups All Bran cereal together in a bowl. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix together butter, sugar, applesauce and eggs, and buttermilk.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together baking soda, flours, and salt.
Fold wet and dry ingredients together and also All-Bran and water mixture.
Lastly, add 1 cup of dry All Bran cereal. Gently fold everything together.
Grease a mini-muffin or regular muffin tin and fill each tin 3/4 of the way full of batter.
Bake for 10-12 minutes for mini muffins and 14-15 minutes for regular size muffins or until the muffins bounce back.
