Brilliant Brunch: Raisin Bran Muffins

Print Friendly and PDF
A lot of muffins over the past few weeks; as I indicated, muffins are comforting to me.  And I think after what I heard from all of you the past week or so, we could all use some more comfort!  These are a childhood favorite.  Mom would often make these for us and it's a great way to use up leftover cereal and makes a great grab-and-go option that you know is healthy and chock full of good stuff.
John loves raisins and so the cereal is a logical extension.  I try and buy it for him whenever it's on sale because unlike me, content to eat cereal every morning, he is not.  Buying it on sale makes it a surprising new addition to his breakfast line up but not too often that it gets boring.  What can I say?  He's like an 8 year old boy sometimes!

Raisin Bran Muffins
Serves:  12 (12 muffins)
1/2 cup oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup buttermilk
4 cups Raisin Bran cereal
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.  Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray thoroughly.  Set aside.  Spoon together oil, sugar, eggs, milk, and buttermilk until well combined.  Add Raisin Bran cereal and stir to coat.  Stir in flour and baking soda.  Mix well.  Spoon muffin batter into the tin and bake 12-18 minutes, until tops are set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.  Store in an airtight container for up to one week.

Until the next time oven is on...


  1. Personally, I am not a fan of raisins, but my mother is a Raisin Bran fanatic. I will be passing this recipe on to her. She'll love it.

  2. I love the idea of a Raisin Bran muffin! I'd much rather eat this than a bowl of cereal! Any time of the day.

  3. Great recipe... but sugar should be upped to "1.5" cups instead of "1" cup.

    1. Chris - thanks for the suggestion! We try to eat very healthy around here and make muffins taste like breakfast food, instead of cake. More sugar is never a bad thing when you're not being restrictive like we are :)
