Take your breakfast cereal on the go with these yummy muffins made with Raisin Bran. You can make this easy recipe from scratch in under 30 minutes.
Raisin Bran makes an easy healthy breakfast, but it’s not exactly portable. You can take your raisin bran “to go” in these muffins, although we like to eat them around the house too!
These muffins are low in fat since they use no butter or oil. The moisture comes from applesauce and the recipe calls for only one egg.
These cereal muffins are also great for your budget! If you have raisin bran that has gotten too stale to taste good in a bowl with milk, it will still be great in your muffins.
If you’re starting with a new box of raisin bran to make your muffins you can grab the store brand or whatever is the least expensive. It all tastes delicious once it’s made into muffins.
You can pack a muffin or two in your bag to eat breakfast on the run. If you’re eating them at home I also love to heat them in the toaster oven to get them warm with a bit of crisp to the edges. Let’s get on to the recipe!
