A classic overnight bran muffin recipe. This recipe is great because batter is kept in the refrigerator and you can make muffins as needed.

I've baked a lot of bran muffins in my day. This by far takes the cake. I was skeptical at first about the Bran Flakes and buttermilk, but the end product was deleted any and all doubts. When I made them, I divided the recipe in half (seeing that it made for it made quite a few servings). From there, I substituted margarine for shortening (surprisingly made no difference in texture or volume, only intensified the taste), used whole wheat pastry flour instead (again, no difference, just a boost in nutrition), swapped a 1/3 cup of sugar for 2 tbs. of honey, and FINALLY coated the top of the muffins with brown sugar before baking. This made for a delicious and presentable muffin that is more pleasing to the eye than just a regular old bran muffin. So I made a few personal alterations.. nothing major. I'm sure the basic, original recipe would bake out the same results. All in the all, the muffins were amazingly tasty and had even the pickiest eaters coming back for seconds..and thirds. PS: I refrigerated them overnight.

Delicious! I have a fresh baked muffin every morning! I love that! I used All Bran cereal buds instead of flakes, substituted whole wheat flour for half of the all-purpose and added a couple tablespoons more milk to compensate. I used a combination of sugar and Splenda to bring the sugar content down (I'm a diabetic). They turned out great. I tink that I'll add walnuts to my muffin tomorrow!

Oh my goodness! Who knew bran muffins could taste so GOOD and moist?! I was hesitant to make such a big batch but based on the other reviews I took the plunge. I'm now whipping up the second batch 2 days later! I made these so my girls would have fresh, healthy muffins for their first day of school and they inhaled them! I used raisin bran for the cereal and because the batter sits overnight, the raisins plumped up nicely. This morning I added some chocolate chips and walnuts and made a dozen more. Fabulous! Tomorrow I'll add shredded carrots & walnuts to the last of it. Thanks for the great recipe!
