*Brans may be switched up to use:
- 2 cups bran flakes and 4 cups bran cereal
- 3 cups of each cereal
- use natural bran to replace one of the cereals
I have tried all of these variations and they work just fine

**You don't have to stick to the addition of raisins if that's not to your taste. Substitute any dried, chopped, raisin sized fruit or I have used chocolate chips...delicious and especially loved by the kids..

NOTE - You must store this muffin batter in your refrigerator!
