Roxie’s Bran Muffins

This muffin recipe uses bran cereal. It was given to me by my midwife after having a baby. Guaranteed to make everything, and I mean everything, better!


  • ½ cup raisins
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 ½ cups bran cereal (such as Kellogg’s All-Bran® Original Cereal)
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 apple, cored and shredded
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • ½ cup honey


Preheat an oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper cupcake liners.

Cover raisins with water in a microwave-safe bowl; microwave on High for 1 minute to plump. Drain raisins and set aside.

Beat egg with milk in a bowl; mix in bran cereal. Let mixture stand until cereal absorbs liquid, about 5 minutes. Gently mix in plumped raisins, flour, baking soda, cinnamon, melted butter, shredded apple, mashed banana, and honey; stir a few times to mix.

Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
