Recipe by Kym in Ohio

These are the best bran muffin I have ever tasted. I got this recipe from The Lazy Gourmet cookbook.

This is the exact recipe we use! I love them. In place of the one cup of oil though, we use 3/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil. These are great--and the fact that the batter lasts so long is a great benefit! Update hint: You can use whole wheat flour in place of some of the white flour (I used 3 cups whole wheat flour). They're quite good!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a very large bowl mix raisin bran, sugar, flour,soda, and salt.
  2. Add eggs, buttermilk, and oil.
  3. This batter will keep 6 weeks in your refrigerator.
  4. Bake as you need them.
  5. I bake them all and freeze them and when I want one I place in the microwave for about 3 minutes taste like you pulled out of the oven.
  6. As you're ready to use fill muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 400°F for 15-20 minutes depending on tin size.
