Raisin Bran Muffin

Start your day right with a delicious and healthy raisin bran muffin, using this simple recipe. 


  • 2 sprays cooking spray
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup uncooked wheat bran
  • ¼ teaspoon salt 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon 
  • ¼ cup butter, softened 
  • 2/3 cup Sugar in the Raw Turbinado Sugar from Natural Cane, or other brand
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup raisins, chopped


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a 12-hole muffin tin with cooking spray. 

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, wheat bran, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon; set aside.

Using an electric mixer, in a large bowl, cream butter with sugar until sugar is dissolved; add egg and beat thoroughly. Add 1/3 of the bran mixture and 1/3 cup of buttermilk; mix until just combined. Repeat, alternating with remaining bran mixture and butermilk. Fold in raisins. 

Fill each prepared muffin hole about 2/3 full with batter; place tray in the middle of the oven. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15-20 minutes. Serve warm or cooled.
