This recipe for refrigerator bran muffins is made using bran flakes. This is different from most bran muffin recipes I have seen. Most of the recipes are made with bran buds. I like using the flakes. You can get a no name brand from the store to use. I also think the flakes give the muffin a different texture.
Yo can make this batter and store it in the refrigerator covered for up to 2 weeks. This way you can just cook them as you need them.
The recipe includes rasisins. However, the muffins work well with or without them. I discovered I didn’t have any when I made the muffins for this picture. Consequently, they were left out and still turned out just fine. I like to eat my bran muffins wwarm and with a little butter.
