I keep a batch of these muffins in my freezer 24/7! They are perfect for breakfast on the go, and my husband loves to grab one on his way to school. They are soo delicious and I love that the recipe uses cereal! I always make mine with regular bran flakes but raisin bran would be yummy too! This recipe is a keeper…promise!

Banana Bran Muffins are the perfect breakfast or on-the-go snack that is also freezer friendly!
- 1/2 cup butter , softened
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 3 bananas , ripe and mashed
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 4 cups bran cereal (or raisin bran cereal)
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans , optional
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together.
Add the eggs, bananas and buttermilk.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into creamed mixture just until moistened.
Fold in the cereal and pecans if using. Batter will be really chunky from the cereal--that's normal!
Fill greased muffin cups full (batter will be chunky).
Bake at 350° for 23-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm.
*These are easy to freeze and taste great when you pull one from the freezer and microwave for 20 seconds.
