There’s nothing better than fresh baked muffins in the morning. But who has time. You do. When you make ahead and refrigerate this delicious bran muffin recipe.
Add baking soda to boiling water and let cool. Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs. Stir in buttermilk. Stir in flour that has been sifted with salt. Add water/baking soda mixture.
In a large bowl, stir together All Bran, Bran Flakes, dates and pecans. Pour buttermilk mixture over the bran mixture and stir lightly. Cover tightly and refrigerate for a minimum of 12 hours. Be sure not to stir again. Batter keeps in the refrigerator for approximately 4 weeks.
To bake: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Drop by spoonfuls into a greased muffin tin. Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
Chocolate zucchini bread loaded with chocolate chunks and drizzled with an orange-infused chocolate glaze.
These beauties are nutrient-dense, full of healthy fats, protein and antioxidants. And not to mention, with staying power to keep you fueled well until lunchtime. Be sure you don’t skip the cinnamon in these muffins. Not only does cinnamon have several wonderful health-related effects on the body, but it is magic when paired with blueberries.
I will admit that I adore traditional banana nut bread, but I always feel as though there is something missing. In this recipe, I added cinnamon and nutmeg to provide a warmth and depth of flavor that cannot be achieved any other way. For those of you who say, “I do not like bananas,” you should still give this recipe a try. My husband said that it reminded him of carrot cake!
