As I was researching about Raisin Bran cereal for my special recipe, I found out
November 15th was the day to celebrate Raisin Bran Cereal, who knew?
My friend Louise of Months of Edible Celebrations was a pro.
Her blog was dedicated to all the holidays that no one ever even heard about.
What fun that was! I hope after a little break she will return
to blogging and keep us in the loop of all these Special holidays.
Raisin Bran was always my cold cereal of choice.
But sometimes, you need a change and I thought muffins would be perfect
to give my morning a new start.
Have you ever heard of Cereal in a Muffin?
I find Bran muffins made with All Bran very dry; plus I didn’t have any.
I saw a few recipes using my Raisin Bran cereal and managed to create one that is low fat and and very tasty.
If you are looking for a hearty muffin without all the fat, give my Raisin Bran Cereal Muffins a try.
They look and taste just like the muffins from the bakery, but so much healthier.
They are not too sweet; perfect for breakfast or for your afternoon cup of tea.

Bran Cereal Flakes and add cranberries or blueberries.
