Raisin Bran Muffins

Why I love this recipe: It's made with Raisin Bran cereal. The kind you buy when you start a new healthy eating food kick, then end up forgetting in the back of your cupboard a week later.

You can save leftover batter in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week and the muffins taste even better after the batter has sat overnight!

You have the option of making fresh muffins any morning of the week, scoop into ramekin/mug and microwave for 1-2 minutes. I was skeptical when I first read this but it really does work. Of course it's not as good as baking them in a regular oven, but you can't beat being able to enjoy fresh muffins on a Monday morning.
