This was just the recipe I was looking for since I had a box of cereal that no one was finishing! They were chewy, yet moist. I added 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon.

Easy, delicious and so convenient! I left out the walnuts, because I didn't have any on hand, but even without these muffins were astounding. My kids adore these with a bit of butter and grape jelly!

Super Recipe! I followed others' advice and mixed all wet ingredients with raisin bran and let soak 5 minutes or so. Then slowly added dry ingredients just until moist. I added 2 TBS. molasses as I wanted the color to be richer and the flavor is superb. I also baked for 15 minutes but at 350 degrees as I misread the directions, but they were very soft and moist. Definately let cool in the pan for a few minutes and then finish cooling on a cookie rack, the first batch fell because they were taken out too early.
