Mama Griggs’s Pumpkin Bran Muffins with chocolate chips are full of flavor and are perfect for breakfast, afternoon snack or dessert. These muffins feature all-bran cereal that just gives it something a bit extra.
Mama Griggs’s Pumpkin Bran Muffins
Barbara had a special request to share these pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips from a former Glenwood Cooperative house mate at Purdue University. The girls in her house used to call these “Polka Dot Muffins” because of the great pumpkin color and loads of chocolate chips.
What makes these muffins a bit different than others out there is that they include a cup of all-bran cereal. Barbara says that alone makes them “healthy” and is a great excuse to eat two muffins!
This is one of those great mix everything together in one bowl recipes. Just grab a large mixing bowl and get started! Just be sure to grease the muffin tins well (or use liners).
How to Make Pumpkin Muffins with Bran Cereal
Mix together the wet ingredients and the bran cereal, and let set for 5 minutes. Add remaining items to the wet mixture and combine. Fill greased (or lined) cupcake tins 2/3rds full with batter. Bake until toothpick comes clean.
If you don’t have any all-bran cereal in the house, try this version of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.
