Ingredients for All Bran Muffins
You will need a few ingredients for this recipe:
List of main ingredients:
Flour– I use All-purpose flour for this recipe. You could also use whole wheat flour if you prefer.
Buttermilk– generic buttermilk works great. If you cannot find it, you can make a good substitute with a mixture of 3/4 teaspoon of lemon juice and enough milk to fill to make 1/4 cup.
All Bran– The All Bran cereal is an integral part of this recipe. You want to use the original All Bran which looks like wheat bran fibers, these are not flakes.
Bran Flakes – .Any Bran flake cereal variety works well.
Variations on this recipe
You can add 1/2 cup of raisins or chopped nuts to this recipe if you wish.

Timesaving Tips for Bran Muffins
- For this recipe, I do not recommend using paper baking cups. The muffin dough forms a nice texture when baked by being in contact directly with the pan.
- When you add the buttermilk to the bran, you need to let the mixture set for about 10 minutes so that the milk can be absorbed by the bran.
- Double the recipe and freeze muffins in a sealed, freezer-safe bag.
How to Store All Bran Muffins?
Store muffins in an airtight container in a cool place for 3-4 days.
