Bladen's Raisin Bran Banana Muffins
I can say without doubt that this is one of the best recipes I've ever developed. This one is quick and easy - (if you don't believe me watch my little girl make them in the video) - and they are just plain delicious. Moist and with tons of fruit, these disappear immediately. I also love the fact that there's almost no fat in them, and the fruit and fiber content is so high. I swear these go faster than cupcakes at my house. I pinky promise.
Check out the awesome little illustration my friend Jonathan Harris made for me when he saw these.
Raisin Bran Banana Muffins
2 cups bran cereal flakes
1 cup buttermilk
1-2 mashed bananas
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with paper cups, or grease tins with cooking spray.
Mix together raisin bran cereal and buttermilk. Set aside for a few minutes, until the cereal absorbs the buttermilk (or most of it).
Mix together the flour, soda, baking powder and salt. Add the raisin bran/buttermilk mixture. Mix together mashed bananas (1 banana if large, two if small, about 1 cup or so); egg, brown sugar and vanilla. Add banana mixture to the flour, and toss ingredients together just until moistened. Add about 1/3 cup batter to each muffin cup - an ice cream scoop is wonderful for getting even amounts.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until tops are deep golden brown.
