Lazy Day Muffins
This is another old recipe of unknown origin. The main thing to know about this is that it makes a lot of muffins. Fortunately, it also keeps very well in the refrigerator, so you can make up a batch of a dozen or so at a time to have for the weekend, and keep the rest in the ’fridge for the next week.
You can use bran flakes or raisin bran for the second cereal. I prefer to use regular bran flakes instead of raisin bran, and then add in some frozen blueberries when baking.
Even if you use a non-stick muffin pan, you'll want to spray it liberally with vegetable oil before baking, or use paper cupcake cups.
