Fresh Peach Bran Muffins

Just thought I’d pop in for a quick hello, and offer you a muffin.

I’m still determined to plow through the ridiculous excess of food stacked three layers deep on my shelves. Did I know I had Red River cereal back there? I did not. Nor did I realize I never finished that box of All Bran that I purchased in an impulsive act of grown-up health-consciousness, then ate maybe three bowls of. And if you’ve been hanging around here a lot, you may know that I hate to waste stuff. Especially food.

And so I snooped around at a few cereal-based recipes, and looked up Sue’s not-a-crap-muffin recipe, and made these, and they turned out really well. I imagine they’d work out just fine using any grainy cereal-turned-mush. I added a peach, cut into chunks; you could add blueberries, or raspberries, or fresh apricots. They aren’t too hard-core, in comparison to others in the realm of bran muffins – not overly grainy in the sort of way that makes it seem like it might have come out of a horse.

    “look like they came out of a horse?” HA HA HA HA HA HA
    Having grown up with horses I easily pictured this and at this late hour found that image hilarious! I’m a muffin mavin, so a new tested recipe never goes to waste.
    Plus, I’m notorious for buying healthy cereal that I decide I don’t like after one try and then it sits in the cupboard for months(years?)

    Yum peach muffins! And bran muffins always have a funny look about them but the addition of peaches definitely make yours look less “gross.” Can’t wait to try these!

    I have some Red River Cereal in my pantry too. Do you have a muffin recipe for this cereal that doesn’t yield one-ton muffins?

    Loved these muffins and made a double batch tonight! Wonderful with peaches and did them with Mango tonight. Added a bit more sugar and a little less baking powder and a little less baking soda.
