6 Week Bran Muffins

Baking | Breakfast

These 6 Week Bran Muffins are the perfect recipe  to have on hand when you are wanting an easy and hot breakfast.  The batter makes four dozen muffins and is stored in your fridge to bake up any time!

These Bran Muffins are a family favorite in our home.  The muffins themselves don’t last 6 weeks, instead it’s the muffin batter! You mix it up and can store it in your fridge for up to 6 weeks.  When you’re ready for hot muffins, just scoop out what you need and pop the rest of the batter back into the fridge. 

I love making these muffins for the start of a new school year.  Having an easy and hot breakfast is always a win in my book!  They also make for a delicious afternoon snack!

The batter will last in your fridge for up to 6 weeks. Although, I have never made it to the 6 week mark because we usually end up using the entire bowl of batter around the 1 week mark.  They’re THAT good!

FAQs

How many does the entire batch of batter make?

You can get 4 dozen regular sized muffins out of the entire recipe.

Do the muffins themselves last for 6 weeks?

No! Only the batter lasts for 6 weeks in your refrigerator.

What kind of bran cereal do you use?

You can totally use Raisin Bran! My crew prefers the bran muffins without raisins. I will just use the store brand of bran cereal flakes.

Can you bake the batter as soon as they’re mixed together?

No. The bran cereal will still be too dry. I highly recommend letting the batter sit in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours before baking.

What kind of oil do I use?

I prefer using avocado oil in all of my baking. But you’re welcome to use whatever kind you like!

  1. I’m so excited to try these out!! Now first I need to get a bowl with a lid big enough…😅🙈 Could I make the whole batch then freeze the extra muffins?

    1. Yes! You absolutely could freeze the muffins if you wanted to make the whole batch! I made 3 dozen for our family and then brought 1 dozen to my sister who just had a baby (we popped them into her freezer for later). They freeze and warm up wonderfully!

  2. I love this recipe! My mom made these when I was a little girl and I make them for my babies now. My mom always swapped out some of the sugar for molasses so that’s what I do, too.
