Raisin Bran Breakfast Muffin

This is a recipe I found on a friend's Pinterest board a few days ago.  They are so good!

Raisin Bran Breakfast Muffins

  • 1 1/2 cups raisin bran cereal
  • 1 cup milk, warmed (I forgot to warm mine...oops...still worked)
  • 1 heaping cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (this makes the muffins!  it gives them a nice nutty flavor)
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Line muffin pan, or spray with non-stick spray
  • Put cereal in a bowl with the milk and leave it for about 5 minutes, until cereal is soft.  Having milk warm helps with this.
  • Combine flour, baking powder, salt and spices in a large bowl.  Stir in raisins.
  • In smaller bowl beat egg, brown sugar and oils together.  Add to flour mixture.
  • Pour in milk/cereal mixture and mix until smooth.
  • Spoon batter into muffin pan and sprinkle a little extra brown sugar on top.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, until firm.
  • Allow to cool for 5 minutes in pan then transfer.
These last in an air-tight container for about 5 days....or keep a few out and freeze the rest for later!
