Delicious, Healthy Bran Muffins & the 1st 3 Winners from the Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along

These yummy muffins are so easy to make...great for lunch boxes too.
They freeze beautifully.
Makes 24 large muffins.
Mixture can be made and stored in refrigerator overnight before baking.
Can be made just with raisins or a mix of whatever you have on hand - see step 4.

200 C.  For 20 minutes

1  Mix together 3 cups bran and 1 cup of boiling water

2  Add 2 cups buttermilk and 1 cup oil

3  Add 2 lightly beaten extra large eggs

4  Add 3 cups of any mix of the following

Pumpkin seeds
Sesame seeds
Sunflower seeds
Dried cranberries
Chopped dates
Flax seeds

I put a little of all of the above...and a full cup of raisins.
But any combination is good...I just love raisins.

5. Add 2 and a half cups cake flour and 2 and a half teaspoons of bicarb and half a teaspoon of salt.

6. Add 1 cup brown sugar.

Store in fridge or divide into 2 greased muffin tins and bake now.

Can sprinkle tops with flaked almonds before baking.

Delicious with jam or just as they are.
The muffins keep well stored in an airtight container for up to five days...enjoy with a hot fresh cup of tea!

And now to announce the first 3 of 36 button winners from the Celebrate Christmas Quilt-Along hosted by the Quilting Gallery:
For Pat's Red & White Block - Flamingofan
