Six Week Raisin Bran muffins, delicious and perfect for a quick breakfast on the go!
Are you a breakfast eater? I am. I love breakfast food. You know what they say, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day! However, some days it’s a little harder than others to take the time to stop and actually eat breakfast. How many of you can agree with that?
I’m fortunate enough to work from home, but I still get so caught up in work that I forget. So, having options that require less time and prep are a win-win for me.
A friend of the family, Brenda, gave this recipe to my mom when I was in Kindergarten. So, I’ve been enjoying these bran muffins for over 30 years now.
My mom not only passed down the recipe, but she also taught me that time is valuable. These muffins free up some of that time. How is that? Well, once the muffin mix is made, it can be kept up to six weeks!! Fabulous, I know.
So, you can simply bake up a half dozen or a dozen when you expect a busier week than usual and you have a delicious bran muffin ready to grab on the go or when you’re in a hurry. Plus, minimal dishes! Score!
I’ve even set my ovens timer in the evening to turn on and warm up before I head downstairs in the morning — pop a few in the oven and in 15 minutes, breakfast is served! How is that for time saving and simplicity?
