Is it weird that my favourite muffin as a kid was a Raisin Bran Muffin?
Not chocolate chip, not mixed berry, not even double double chocolate. Raisin Bran Muffin. Always. You know you’re going to be a dietitian when…
But the thing is, it wasn’t the fibre count that got my heart going, it was the texture. Raisin Bran muffins have this amazing contrast of whole grains with a moist and buttery muffin base. For many years I struggled to recreate them at home because well, they tasted too darn healthy! Too much fibre, too much graininess.
Finally, I found a version that fits the bill. These Raisin Bran Muffins are so moist and so delicious all on their own, although when you add a pat of butter to one of these warm muffins, they are truly sublime.
They are also school box friendly and if you’ve got some raisin crazy kids at home, do yourself a favour and bake up a double batch. They will keep smashingly in the freezer so a fresh and warm muffin will always be minutes away.
