Raisin Bran Muffins

All of us have tried Raisin Bran cereal. A traditional breakfast pairing is the slightly sweetened flakes and tasty raisins. This recipe transforms the concept of raisin bran cereal into a mouthwatering buttermilk muffin. Why not adore it?

Between Chocolate layer cake with cocoaStrawberry Cake Roll, and S’mores Pancakes there are plenty of breakfast baked goods to choose from. However, these Raisin Bran Muffins have the added benefit of being healthy.

These bran muffins are not only delicious and buttery, but they are also high in fiber and have a low fat content. The outer layer of a wheat kernel is where wheat bran is found. It’s a fantastic method to make your baked products tasty and healthful and is strong in nutritional fiber. They are a family-friendly breakfast that you may indulge in without feeling bad.

Raisin Bran Muffins


  • As soon as the oven is ready, line your muffin pan with paper liners.
  • In a large basin, combine the buttermilk and wheat bran. The bran combination should be set aside and given 10 minutes to rest.
  • Oil, egg, brown sugar, vanilla, and raisins are combined and well whisked while the bran and buttermilk are setting.
  • Mix the dry ingredients gradually.
  • Be cautious not to overmix the dry and wet materials while combining them.
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin tray that has been prepped, and bake for 18 to 20 minutes.
  • To check if muffins are baked through, stick a toothpick in the center of one. Take the Raisin Bran Muffins out of the oven if the toothpick is removed with no batter on it.


You don’t have any buttermilk in the refrigerator. There’s no need to dash to the store right now. Making your own buttermilk is simple and may be done with things you already have in the house.

  • Put 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar into a 1 cup measurer.
  • Fill the rest of the cup with milk.
  • Mix the two together.
  • Let it sit for about 5 minutes until the milk curdles, then use in your recipe.
Raisin Bran Muffins


  • Add-ins: To liven up the flavor and consistency of your Raisin Bran Muffins, try substituting some of the raisins with blueberries, raspberries, pecans, or chocolate chips in the muffin batter.
  • Gluten-free: Oat bran may be used to create the same batter as wheat bran, which contains gluten. Ensure that the oat bran you purchase has the label “gluten-free” on it. By doing this, you can ensure that there was no production-related cross-contamination.
  • Vegan: Replace the egg in the recipe with applesauce to make your muffin batter vegan. Replace the egg with 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce.
  • Mini-muffins:Make bran muffins in a tiny muffin pan to make them even more transportable. Because the little muffins will bake more quickly, be sure to watch them carefully in the oven.
