Add buttermilk,oil & eggs. Blend until dry ingredients are moist. do not over stir. DO NOT STIR BATTER AGAIN. Batter may be stored covered in refrigerator up to 6 weeks, making muffins when needed. Do not stir batter when filling muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake 400 degree for 15-20 mins. Makes 4 dozen muffins. Batter may be cut in half.
It will not last 6 weeks, as you will have baked them all by then.

We all seem to have a variation of this recipe in our boxes and it is everyone's favorite. But no one can find Nabisco or Post 100% Bran cereal and they aren't the same without them. Where oh where can we find it?
