Banana Bran Muffins - TSLC

This Banana Bran Muffin recipe is so good and easy to make.  We like them with coffee for breakfast or with a meal, too.

3 medium-sized ripe bananas, mashed (I just peel and mash-up with a fork)

1 1/2 cups Raisin Bran cereal

1/2 cup milk

2 eggs

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 stick butter or margarine or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Nuts, Optional (I usually use walnuts or pecans if I add the nuts)

Mash bananas with a fork and set aside.  Put Raisin Bran in a dish and cover with the milk to soak into the cereal. (the raisin bran will soak up the milk in about 10 minutes or so) In a mixing bowl cream together the eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla. Add bananas and cereal and continue mixing.  Whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and then add to the creamed mixture and mix.  Fold in nuts.  Spray a 12 cup muffin tin with cooking spray.  Fill cups just below full level.  Bake 30 to 35 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven checking for doneness as ovens vary.  Makes 12 muffins.  Enjoy!

  1. Made these this morning to use up some overripe bananas. OMG These are great! I added walnuts (from my tree). No need to run bran glakes thru procesor, they came out with very nice texture and not too sweet. This one is a keeper

  2. Hi, I made these as a loaf instead of muffins and it was wonderful, not too sweet which I like. I actually put my raisin bran through the food processor because even after 15 minutes of soaking, the flakes seemed too big. It worked out great, definitely making this again. Thanks for the great recipe and I really love your blog. Maria
