Raisin Nut Bran Muffins

Last night my husband said “This one’s a keeper!” Too funny, maybe I should print the recipe out for him 🙂 Just kidding! I often make muffins for breakfast on the weekends. These would be simple for that.


I’ve also noticed with a lot of these older, more traditional recipes the ingredients only make 12 muffins/cupcakes. Brilliant. I always wondered why muffin tins were sold in 12’s when cupcakes and so many recipes were made in batches of 24! So don’t worry – you don’t need a second muffin tin just to finish this one!


As for flavour, they are good; not too dry like some Bran is – I added double the amount of raisins, as the bag indicated they were expiring in a few weeks. 🙂

Look at these delicious muffins & melting butter! Mmm


Here is Grandma’s original recipe (notice  the lack of instructions, haha):
