These are delicious, and relatively good for you. They even pass the husband test. He’s been taking them for breakfast.
- 2 cups Raisin Bran (R) cereal (or generic)
- 2 cups flour*
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 heaping Tbsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. salt
- 4 eggs
- 2 cups applesauce (preferably unsweetened or lightly sweetened)
- 1/3 cup oil (I prefer canola)
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/4+ cup graham crackers crumbs
- 1/4+ cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- generous sprinkle nutmeg
Crush the cereal to break up the bran flakes a bit. I did this in a bowl with the back of a large spoon. To the cereal add the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl combine the eggs, oil, milk, and applesauce. Beat well with a fork. Gradually add dry mixture and until well combined. Pour in to greased muffin tins. Combine all 4 topping ingredients. Spoon over tops of muffins.
This recipe is equivalent to 2 dozen regular muffins but I prefer a larger muffin so I fill my tins more than the standard halfway full. This time I used my extra large muffin tin and produced 5 huge muffins from this recipe. Baking time is 20 minutes at 350 F for regular muffins – or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. My extra large muffins needed around 40 minutes for reference.
Enjoy!! Sorry there is no picture – we ate them all up before I thought of that!!
*I used all purpose flour this time, you can use whole wheat but expect a little heavier texture.
