Must be he was afraid he would miss out on these muffins if I didn't make it home.....
I had some Post Great Grain's cereal in our cupboards and I wanted muffins this morning for breakfast. While I am a total muffin girl my very favorite muffin is a bran type muffin with dried fruit in it....like Nanny's Raisin Bran Muffins. I didn't have raisin bran but I had some Post Great Grains Pecan, Date & Raisin cereal that I needed to use up so I started mixing and 30 minutes later I had some moist, warm, yummy muffins for breakfast!
I left a couple for Grumpy next to the coffee maker and packed the rest up to bring to the office. Every time I do this I think of Mags and how much I wish I could be one of her hubby's co-irkers. I also wish I had come up with that term!
Pecan, Date, Raisin and Bran Muffins
1-1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups great grains cereal (I do not crush)
1-1/2 cup Almond flavored Silk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
Put cereal in large bowl and pour almond milk over cereal. Let sit about 5 minutes. Mix in egg, vanilla, oil. Make a well in dry ingredients and pour wet ingredients into center of well. Gently fold mixture until it is "just wet" and spoon into 12 muffin cups (either line with paper or spray pan with cooking spray). Bake for 15-20 minutes (mine took just 15).
