Always a favorite, bran muffins are a staple for an everyday breakfast treat. These are kept moist with buttermilk in the recipe.

If you are looking for a healthy, high fiber bran muffin that still tastes great and is not dry and crumbly, try this recipe.


You may not have actually eaten All-Bran cereal in a long time on its own, but it does make for a tasty muffin. Once it is soaked in buttermilk, the cereal softens up and the buttermilk lends a great flavor.

Powdered buttermilk is usually found in the baking isle at your favorite grocery. I find it easier to use and store powdered buttermilk vs. fresh as it is not an ingredient I use frequently. It will keep in the refrigerator a long time.
