Easy and good for you!



Set your oven to 350 degrees F and grease your muffin tins well, set aside.

Mix together the flour and wheat germ (or flax) and make a hole in the middle, for the wet ingredients to go.

Mix together the eggs, melted butter, sugar, banana, vanilla, nuts, and raisins and pour into the center of the dry ingredients. Stir just until blended.

Spoon into muffin cups. You can fill almost to the top as these muffins don't rise much. Bake approximately 20-30 minutes, or until browned. Cool on a cooling rack for a few minutes and then enjoy plain or with a little butter.

These freeze very well and are great to have on hand for a quick breakfast. I buy bananas that are very ripe and freeze them for these muffins. They can be thawed for 1 minute in the microwave and work great.

These muffins are quick to make and have a sweet surprise in the center. Mix them up in one bowl.

My grandchildren and my husband love muffins for breakfast and as snacks. Sometimes mornings are very hectic at our house, so I have started premixing my muffins in the evening.

Find a good basic muffin recipe and play with it. Experiment with different kinds of flour or combinations of flour. Use different nuts, fruits, coconut, spices, etc. Freeze the baked muffins and warm one a day in the microwave for breakfast.

For high rising, rounded tops on muffins like you see in the bakeries, preheat your oven to 500 degrees F. As soon as you put the muffins into the oven, decrease the temperature to whatever the recipe calls for.


Remember to decrease the baking time.

Why do my bran muffins stick to the paper?

By Christina


February 3, 20150 found this helpful

The bran itself is a sticky material when added to water in a dough. It maintains this stickiness even after baking. If you want a less stickie muffin, try recipes with less bran or without bran. You can also just use a spray oil like Pam to spray the muffin cups and avoid the paper altogether. There may still be some sticking to the metal but no paper problem.

How can I keep muffins warm without an oven for about 30 minutes?

Wrap them really well with aluminum foil. Do you have a microwave? They can easily be reheated in that, but don't over warm or they'll get tough.
