Tasty bran muffins

This recipe is a bit of an invention/adaptation. Here it is so I don't forget. I typically store 1/2 the batch in the fridge & the rest in the freezer. Microwave a couple for 20 seconds for an easy breakfast. 

Preheat oven to 400 and line muffin tins. Makes 24 muffins. 

5 c all bran cereal
2.5 c milk or buttermilk

Combine and let sit while measuring out the rest of your ingredients. 
1/2 stick butter melted (4 T)
2 ripe bananas mashed 
2 eggs beaten
1 T vanilla

1/2 c sugar
2 T baking powder
1 t salt
1 T cinnamon

1 to 2 c chopped fruit or nuts 

Thoroughly mix all ingredients and spoon into muffin tins. Bake 20 minutes. 

For fruit or nuts I like blueberries (fresh or frozen), chopped apple, dried cranberries or apricots, pecans. I made this batch with a bag of fresh cranberries which were excellent. You can also substitute canned pumpkin for the mashed banana. Yum. 

Here's the nutrition info for the recipe made with 2 c fruit added.
