Bran Muffins

These bran muffins are a staple food in my mom’s kitchen.  To this day, whenever we get together, she brings a bin of these muffins.  They are great traveling snacks.  My son and nieces love them, too!  It’s a great way to get your family to eat bran and get a dose of fiber without them noticing it.

This recipe makes a big batch so freeze extra muffins in a Ziploc bag for another day.  The batter will keep in a sealed container for several days so you can make a few at a time and have fresh muffins every morning.

Serve them warm or at room temperature with homemade jam.
