These Raisin Bran muffins are a great way to use up any extra cereal and make a great snack.
In an effort to add more fibre to our lives, I went out and bought a giant box of Raisin Bran from Costco. I could have started with a small box but I think everyone knows the power of Costco. Also, it was on sale so it just seemed to make sense.
A month later and the box is still full. Who wants to reach for Raisin Bran when Frosted Mini Wheats are an option? I needed to find a way to use up the cereal.
These Raisin Bran muffins seemed like the perfect idea, great for breakfast or a snack. Chocolate chips were a must because they just make everyone happy. The addition of yogurt makes these muffins super moist.
If you love nuts, definitely add them. I didn’t add nuts to this recipe but I do love nuts in all my baking. I usually throw in a handful to the second half so the kids still have nut-free options for school. Almonds, pecans or even walnuts would work so well with these.
This is a great recipe for the kids to make. There is no mixer required so everything can be mixed by hand. Also, only one egg is needed so they can practice cracking the egg into an empty bowl. Z loved helping make a batch and felt a great sense of accomplishment that he made something so delicious.
