- 1 cup bran cereal (e.g. All Bran Original)
- 1 cup mashed bananas (3 bananas)
- 1 ½ cups plain yogurt
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ⅓ tsp salt
- ½ cup chopped nuts and/or raisins
- 2 eggs
- ½ cup packed brown sugar
- ¼ cup cooking oil
ONE: Combine bran cereal, bananas and yogurt in a medium bowl. Let stand for a couple minutes to allow cereal to soften. Meanwhile, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and nuts and/or raisins in a large bowl; set aside.
TWO: Stir eggs, sugar and oil into bran mixture, then add to dry ingredients; stir just until combined.
THREE: Spoon batter evenly into 12 greased or paper-lined muffin cups.
FOUR: Bake in a preheated 400°F (200°C) until tops spring back when pressed, about 17 to 20 minutes. Let muffins cool in pan for a few minutes, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container.
