My friend told me to submit this Refrigerator Bran Muffin recipe from my sister-in-law. It's awesome and easy! The mix can sit in the refrigerator for up to a week, just stir before making.

The recipe is good. However I had to make some adjustments. I used Fiber One and safe to say the first time I made it I had the same results as the raters before me. This time I used HOT coffee (boiling hot) and soaked the fiber cereal in the coffee until it was mushy then followed the rest of the recipe. Good Luck! Read More

I didn't care for these very much. The flavoring was good for bran muffins but mine turned out really dry. I wonder if they would have been more moist if oil was used instead of butter. My 1 and 3 year old kids liked them though. Read More

These muffins were very dry and bland. They had a horrible flavor and I followed the recipe exactly. They also didn't rise. I do not recommend this recipe. Read More

These muffins were dense did not rise and I would not make them again. Needs more liquid (much more). Disappointing. Read More

After reading all of the low rated reviews and trying the recipw myself I tweeked this quite a bit. I love the idea of using coffee in the ingredients! I would have to give this one a 2 star rating sorry. But it put me on the fun road of creating just what I was looking for! I think I'll end up posting my tweeked version! Thanks Read More

Easy to make. A little time consuming yet if you are making more than muffins this recipe definately helps with other kicthen tasks. I used flavored coffee and it gives the muffins a small hint of flavor. Read More

I've made this recipe a few times now and really love these muffins! I use Greek coffee and oats instead of bran. I also add a little extra buttermilk (or plain yoghurt depending on what I have available) vanilla essence and dried cranberries or raisins and whatever nuts I have. I don't leave the batter in the fridge but bake them straight away. These muffins are awesome for breakfast or an afternoon snack with a cup of fresh coffee! Thanks for sharing:) Read More
