Refrigerator raisin bran muffins

Preparation time: 15 minutes. Baking time: 11–13 minutes per batch. Chilling time: at least 1 hour.


  • 1 box (15 ounces) raisin bran cereal
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 cups Equal Sugar Lite baking blend
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 quart 1% buttermilk
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup liquid egg substitute


Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir to mix well. Refrigerate batter at least one hour before baking muffins to allow cereal to soften. Preheat oven to 400°F. Stir batter. Line muffin tins with paper baking cups. Fill each I full with batter (approximately 3/4 cup batter per muffin). Bake for 11–13 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in muffins comes out clean. Cover unused batter and refrigerate for up to 10 days. Muffins freeze well.

Yield: 50 servings. Serving size: 1 muffin.
