How to Make Bran Muffins

I learned how to make bran muffins because they are considered to be healthier than those made solely of refined products. Bran is the hard outer layer of grain and is rich in dietary fiber. It also contains substantial vitamins, minerals, proteins and other beneficial nutrients for the body.


Bran, wheat or rice, is routinely used to enrich breads; particularly muffins. If you learn how to make bran muffins they will make you a great breakfast food. They can be prepared ahead of time to keep on hand for this important meal. Not only do they make a convenient meal but also a healthy and filling food due to the high fiber.

I learned how to make bran muffins for the first time with the following recipe: it is actually a crowd size muffin recipe. This recipe will make about 4 1/2 dozens of the regular size muffins or about half that many if you use the jumbo muffin tins. You might want to divide the recipe in one half or one third if you do not want so many. These muffins can be stored in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to six weeks.
