Refrigerator Raisin Bran Muffins | Raisin Bran Muffins | Muffins Recipe | Raisin Bran Refrigerator Muffins

These refrigerator bran muffins–a family recipe shared by my amazing Auntie Lois–are an all-time favorite in my house. They are SO yummy! The recipe makes a huge batch, but the batter stores in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks. It is perfect for busy mornings because we can spoon out just what we need and have a hot, delicious, & healthy breakfast even when we are short on time (or energy.)

Gather the ingredients for these yummy muffins: flour, salt, eggs and raisin bran.

Here is what you need:
1 15oz box Raisin Bran
5 cups flour
2 1/2  cups sugar
5 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
4 cups buttermilk
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups Craisins  or raisins (optional)
fresh or frozen blueberries (optional)

Combine the cereal, flour and other dry ingredients in your mixing bowl.

1. Combine first five dry ingredients in a large bowl; mix well.

Use the whisk attachment on your mixer to combine the liquid ingredients for these muffins.

2. Combine wet ingredients in a second bowl & whisk well.

Add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, using a spoon to fold them together.

3. Pour wet mixture into cereal mixture; stir just until blended. Fold in Craisins.

Refrigerate batter overnight or longer in a covered glass container.

 4. Place in tightly covered container in refrigerator overnight. Batter will keep up to 3 weeks. DO NOT STIR!!!
Fill lined muffin cups with the batter and add a small handful of blueberries to each muffin.
To bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease muffin tins (or use muffin liners). Spoon desired amount of batter into pan. If desired, press fresh or frozen blueberries into muffins just before baking. Bake 18 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.
