Pumpkin Bran Muffins

This may just be my new favorite muffin. My old favorites were bran and pumpkin, but this has BOTH!!! Pumpkin AND bran! They are delicious, and nutritious!

Start by pouring the cereals into a large mixing bowl and covering with the milk.

Let it sit for a few minutes so that the cereal softens. In the meantime, combine the dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon.

To the cereal mixture, add the pumpkin

(mine looks weird cause it had been in the freezer; it's leftover from the sausage pumpkin pasta), egg and oil

and mix well. Stir in the raisins.

Fill paper-lined muffin cups with batter and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 20 minutes or until muffins test done. Cool completely on a wire rack.

These freeze beautifully - so make plenty and you can pull them out of the freezer for a nutritious, convenient delicious breakfast!
