Instructions Checklist
  • In a very large bowl, combine cereal, dried fruit, ground flaxseeds and oil. Pour boiling water over mixture. Let stand for 5 minutes.

  • In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, egg and molasses. Add buttermilk mixture to bran mixture and stir to combine.

  • In a large bowl, stir together whole-wheat flour, nuts (if desired), sugar and baking soda. Add to bran mixture. Stir just until moistened (do not overmix). Let stand for 15 to 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat twenty-four 2-1/2-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Spoon batter into prepared cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Bake about 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in centers comes out clean. Cool in muffin cups on wire racks for 5 minutes. Remove from muffin cups. Serve warm.
