Refrigerator Bran Muffins - Farm Journal

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Secret Agent

These muffins are fantabulous and the batter will keep 6 weeks in your refrigerator so you can make what you need when you need it. You can add your own touch to these muffins before baking with dried fruit, nuts, cinnamon, spices, to make them different.

I've used this very recipe for years and years. Whenever I'm ready to bake them I put some batter in a bowl then add raisins, nuts or whatever else I might want, then fill the tins. In my opinion this is the best muffin recipe on the planet and I thank you for posting it.
