The best earth muffin…muffins? haha

So..i don’t have a photo to post yet..but i promise i’ll update soon. My husband brought home some muffins from a job a while ago..and after getting over my phobia of food from strangers (he convinced me she had a very clean house and seemed like a total earth muffin) i had to admit they were pretty kickin. AND they’re super healthy! here’s the recipe!

Six week Muffins (bcuz the batter last for 6 weeks in the fridge)
*preheat oven to 350

1 box (14-16oz) Raisin Bran
1 Quart buttermilk (click here for a buttermilk substitute)
1C oil ( I use half a cup oil and 3/4C applesauce)
4 eggs
1 1/2C Brown Sugar & 1C white sugar
-Combine the above ingredients in a very large bowl

5C flour ( use 3 wheat and 2 white)
5 tsp. baking soda
-combine then add to the above mixture

Heres where you can be creative, you can add all the listed additions or pick and choose, i do all of these, about 1C ea.
-flax seed -wheat germ
-Raisins (goldens are delish) -nuts
-crushed pineapple – dried unsweetened coconut

For a crunchy topping press granola or coconut or cinnamon and sugar or rice krispies into the top of the batter with a spoon. Bake for 20-25min (or 15-18 for mini muffins)
