Bran Muffins With Raisins

Fall is here, and these easy Bran Muffins pair nicely with your morning cup of coffee!

Bran Muffins with Raisins 


1-1/2 cups bran cereal (crushed in food processor)
1/4 cup canola oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 400. Line a 6-cup standard muffin pan with paper cup liners.

In a large bowl, combine cereal with oil and buttermilk. Add remaining ingredients and stir gently until combined.  Divide batter evenly among cups.  Bake 20-25 minutes. (You’ll know muffins are done by inserting a toothpick in the center and having it come out clean). Remove muffins from pan and cool on rack.
