Thank you for posting this. I use this recipe for my basis when making my "healthy muffins". I sub whey protein for 1/4 c. of the flour, I use splenda instead of sugar, a mashed banana or a 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin is always nice plus some cinnamon for flavor. I was just thinking of posting this so I don't lose it again and you did it! Thanks again.
Although this is very good, it isn't really the original recipe that appeared on Nabisco bran cereal boxes before the late 70s or early 80s, and I think that is what many of us remember when we think of our mother's recipes. I still have the original, which I will place here. If this one doesn't taste like what you remember, try the earlier one. You can substitute Kellogg's All Bran for the Nabisco cereal. I think this one is better because of the brown sugar.<br/>1 Egg<br/>1 c milk<br/>3 Tbsp vegetable oil<br/>1-1/2 cups Nabisco 100% Bran Cereal<br/>1 c sifted all purpose flour<br/>2 - 1/2 tsp baking powder<br/>1/2 tsp salt<br/>1/4 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed<br/><br/>Beat first three ingredients. Stir in cereal and let stand 5 mins (or longer). Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Blend in sugar. Add bran mixture, stirring just until combined, do not overmix. Fille greased muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 18 - 20 mins. Makes 12 2-1/2 muffins.
On my monthly shopping spree I bought two large cereal boxes that were on promotion. They each came with a smaller box of all-bran flakes. This is not my usual brand of bran flakes, and I found them to be tasting like cardbox. This recipe became ideal for the purpose of using these bad bran-flakes. I timed it by three and added a cup of cake mix. A nother bonus was not having to use paper cups, as they came easily out of the pan. Will make again in orded to use the rest of the unused cereal.
Always love this one! I chop up 1 apple and add it in just before placing in cups. Tastes wonderful and is a healthy breakfast for everyone.
This makes delicious muffins. I substituted spenda for the sugar and added 1/2 c of unsweetened applesauce. Splenda is a wonderful product - but it does not add the moistness that you get from sugar so I think it's important to add that back in. Pumpkin or banana would be good too.
Pretty good. Not as good as I remember my mom making. Could have been just a touch sweeter. Maybe next time I will add raisins like I saw a few do. Overall, a decent muffin. Thanks for posting this recipe. I am going to definitely play around with it for a bit though. ;)
Great recipe.. not so sweet like a sicky sweet icing'd muffin. Wonderful for on the go breakfast..good cold or hot...
I substitute 2 cups of unsweetened applesauce for the milk in this recipe. Add 1/2 tsp cinnamon and raisins. Great muffins!!
I love this recipe!!! I make these every few days and eat 2 mini muffins every morning!! Great source of fiber!! I do add a banana to the recipe or raisins once in a while, but i love them plain as well!!!! Not super sweet, just perfect.
Wonderful! Made 55 mini muffins - delicious little crispy bites. Used butter instead of PAM. Used whipping cream instead of milk & oil - had to add 1/4 cup more water with the egg. A splash of vanilla & a teaspoon of ginger - baked for 17 minutes & cooled on cookie rack - crispy deliciousness! Bringing a handful in to early am meeting - just the thing instead of stale "muffins" offered as breakfast (bringing my own coffee too LOL).
