Refrigerator Bran Muffins

Bran muffins??!! When most people hear bran muffins they think…old, tasteless, and way to healthy…not going to eat them. Well before you turn your nose up, let me introduce a new kind of bran muffin. Not only are they tasty, and moist, they are also convenient and yes, very healthy. This recipe makes a whole lot of batter so you may want to consider making half of the recipe. The best part about these muffins is that you can conveniently keep them in your refrigerator for up to 6 weeks. Who doesn’t like muffins especially when you don’t even have to do the work of mixing all of the ingredients together each time you want a hot and fresh muffin.

Try it out I think you will like it. I have been into health food a lot lately and this is a great one to add to your recipe box. My mom made these for us as kids and we loved them. Of course we didn’t know they were healthy for us!
