Notes

This batter can be prepared and stored for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator. Pour batter into prepared muffin tins and bake as needed. Or you can bake the whole batch and keep extras in the freezer.

Sour milk can be used instead of buttermilk. To prepare, combine 3 tbsp (45 ml) lemon juice or white vinegar with 4 cups (1 L) milk and let stand for 5 minutes.Nutrition Facts:

Eating bran muffins for breakfast is a great way to get more fiber into your day. Wheat bran promotes regularity and a healthy digestive system.
