Cut in half and add a *smidge of butter* (I know, there is that smidge portion again….)…

Mmmm…. mmmm….it was that good!
My mom always told me to stop playing with my food….*giggle*.
Care for one? I’ll put on some coffee, too.
Do you like jam or butter on your muffin?
Undercover muffins…..and they think we can’t see them. Hmpgh!
Recipe as follows:
Honey Bran Muffins
1 1/4 cup Grape Nuts cereal
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup quick cooking oats
3 teaspoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Cup Buttermilk
2 Tablespoons Milk
1/4 cup honey
1 large egg
4 tablespoons butter, melted
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease muffin cups or use foil baking cups.
Soak the Grape Nuts cereal in the buttermilk for a half hour, till somewhat softened.
In a large mixing bowl, mix the flour, oats, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl whisk the egg, honey and 2 tablespoons of milk until well blended.
Whisk in the melted butter until well blended.
Add the Grape Nuts/buttermilk mixture to the egg/honey mixture. Pour this mixture into
the dry mixture. Stir in with a rubber spatula until well moistened.
Scoop the mixture into the muffin tin and fill the cups about 3/4 full. Bake for 18-24 minutes, or
until lightly browned, firm and springy to the touch in the very center. Remove from pan
and allow to cool for a few minutes before you serve them.
These have a tangy buttermilk taste, are very tender and not too sweet. If you prefer
a sweeter muffin, you can increase the sugar or add brown sugar in place of the
white granulated sugar. I always tweak my recipes to make them just how I like them.
