When I want to make muffins in a hurry, this is the recipe I use. The oat bran cereal makes these easy to prepare, and the sweet dark molasses adds a rich flavor.


  • 2 cups uncooked oat bran cereal
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 egg or 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil


  1. In a large bowl, combine cereal, brown sugar and baking powder. Combine egg, milk, molasses and oil; mix well. Add to dry ingredients and stir just until moistened.
  2. Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups three-fourths full. Bake at 425° for 15-17 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool in the pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack.
