Banana Bran and Raisin Muffins

Looking for a healthier muffin to bake, I opted for some sort of a bran muffin. I came across a few I wanted to try, but didn’t have all the ingredients on hand. I did have some bananas that needed to be used, so these were perfect! I liked the fact that these had diced bananas instead of mashed in them. I also used canola oil instead of vegetable. The kids loved these!

2 cups Kellogg’s All-Bran cereal
1-1/4 cups milk
1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 egg
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 banana, cut into small chunks
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray or line with cupcake papers.
In a large mixing bowl, combine bran cereal and milk. Let stand for about 2 minutes to soften the cereal.
Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Set aside.
Into the softened bran mix stir the egg and oil. Beat well. Stir in the banana and raisins. Add the flour mixture, stirring only until combined. Divide the batter evenly into 12 muffin cups.
Bake about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Best served warm.
