6 Week Bran MuffinsThe batter can stay in your refrigerator for 6 weeks, and you can bake as needed. I halved the recipe, baked them all, and froze them.


Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 26 for half a recipe


  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 5 cups bran (I used Kellogg's All-Bran cereal)
  • 5 cups whole wheat flour
  • 5 tsp baking soda
  • 1.5 tsp salt (optional- I used 1/2 tsp.)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon or 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup wheat germ or flaxseed meal
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup molasses or 1 cup brown sugar or 1 cup honey
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 4 cups buttermilk or 4 cups yogurt
  • 1 cup raisins or 1 cup chopped apple (I used blueberries)
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Blueberries were on sale, so I used those instead of raisins or apples. I also substituted flaxseed meal for the wheat germ, as that is what I had on hand.


  1. Pour boiling water over 2 cups bran.
  2. In another bowl, sift flour, soda, salt, and spice. (I used a whisk instead of sifted.)
  3. Add wheat germ and rest of bran; combine with wet bran.
  4. Stir until moist; add oil, sweetener, eggs, buttermilk and fruit.

  7. Bake at 400 for 15-20 minutes.

The batter will stay in your refrigerator for up to 6 weeks. I halved the recipe and got 26 muffins. They freeze well and are healthy and delicious.
