Date-Nut Bran Muffins Recipe

This excellent bran muffin recipe has been in Daria Burcar's family over 25 years. "They're incredibly moist and chock-full of healthy ingredients like raisins, dates and nuts," says the Rochester, Minnesota resident.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 15 min./batch YIELD:30 servings

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cereals and boiling water; let stand for 5 minutes. In another large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, buttermilk and oil. Stir cereal and buttermilk mixtures into dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in the dates, raisins and walnuts.

"Would make these again and again. Very moist and they freeze very well. I made one dozen muffins and one 4x12 loaf with this recipe. I doubled the amount of dates instead of using raisins. Would be great for brunches or family gatherings."
