Raisin Bran Muffins

I like might be an eighty year old woman trapped in a younger body. Why you might ask?  Well for one I go to be around 9pm every night. I also like bran. Like love it.

Bran muffins were my favorite muffins at the bakery I worked at in college. Raisin bran is a top pick for cereal options.  Wheat bran is a constant in my pantry. So you tell me, am I an eighty year old at heart?

These little muffins are super filling due to all of the fiber. They are sweet though with the addition of raisins and brown sugar.  Add a little peanut butter in the middle and munch away.
