Sometimes We... Make Muffins!

Ok... so maybe not "sometimes".... more like "twice a week!" I love making muffins because my family loves muffins. They are great for breakfast, and transport easily for snacks. They are a great way to sneak in some veggies, and can be as (un)healthy as I want them to be. And...

Aviel has a great time helping....

My messy little muffin man!

This batch was peanut butter ginger spice. We do all sorts... blueberry, zucchini, spinach almond, strawberry, cherry, carrot... I'm always looking for new ideas, so if you have a few, leave them in the comments!

  1. I love muffins. This first recipe is fun to make and give as gifts

    Six Week Muffin Mix

    2 C All-Bran cereal Pour boiling water over 2 C of the bran
    1 3/4 C boiling water cereal, in a bowl, and let stand.

    4C All-Bran Cereal
    3/4 C vegetable oil
    2 C honey
    4 eggs
    1 quart of buttermilk

    Put rest of the bran cereal, oil, honey, eggs and buttermilk in another large bowl and mix well.

    Sift together: 5 C whole wheat flour
    5 tsp. baking soda
    2 tsp. salt

    Add this dry mixture to the wet mixture. Then add the bran that you have been soaking in the other bowl.

    Put in clean quart glass jars and refrigerate. ---this recipe will fill a little over 3 quart jars---6 dozen muffins. I usually double the batch and it makes 7 quarts.

    You can refrigerate this mix for up to six weeks or bake right away.
    When you bake you can stir in raisins or nuts or dates if you want--optional.
    Set oven for 400 and bake for 20 minutes

    To make individual muffins:
    Spray Pam in plastic measuring cup, or tea cup and fill 2/3 full of mix. Put in Microwave on high for 1.30 minutes. Enjoy
    I make several batches of this before Christmas and give a quart or two as gifts to neighbors or church friends. Just tie with a red bow and the storing and baking directions. People love this because they can have delicious homemade bran muffins in minutes with no mess.

    Here is another crowd pleaser:
