This is one of those recipes that I have seen on the side of the cereal box since the times when I actually sat at the breakfast table reading all sides of the cereal box. Twenty years later, it seemed time to try making Raisin Bran Cereal Muffins. I dressed up the side of the box recipe with a few extra spices and a sweet, nutty topping.
This recipe is a great base muffin mix, consider livening these muffins up with ripe banana or canned pumpkin.
Here's what you'll need...
1-1/4 cups milk
1/3 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup oil
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cardamom
1/3 cup chopped pecans (or other chopped nuts)
1/4 cup oatmeal
1/3 cup brown sugar
1. Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.
3. Combine your flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder in a large mixing bowl. Set aside.
6. Spoon batter into muffin cups.
7. Combine chopped pecans, oatmeal, and brown sugar.
10. Serve warm or store in an airtight container.
I love cereal and I love muffins, so I am pretty pleased with myself on this one.I found some similar recipes that can be stored in the refrigerator as batter for several days. These sound like great make-ahead options for brunch or holiday breakfasts for a crowd.
Thanks for sticking with me. I appreciate you.
