Not kidding! I went to a bed and breakfast a while ago with my husband, and they served these at breakfast. I inhaled mine and begged and pleaded for the "secret" recipe, which I got of course! Super easy, and sooo yummy!

Here's the original recipe, followed by some fun/healthier options:

Wild Goose Inn Muffins

Ingredients:
1 box Raisin Bran cereal (about 8 cups)
5 cups flour
1 cup sugar
5 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped walnuts
2 cups shredded coconut
-------
4 cups buttermilk
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs, beaten

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients well. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients. Blend both batches together until just combined. (He actually used a large tupperware container, tossed in both batches, and shook!)

Fill lined muffin tin cups with a large scoop of batter. For large crunchy tops, mound the batter up over the top of the tin (these muffins do not rise much!). Bake for 23 minutes. (Yes, he said 23 exactly, but your oven may require more or less!)

This makes a big batch, so I usually just bake 6 and then refrigerate the rest of the batter. It can sit for three weeks!

Now for some other options:


To cut the fat - Use reg. or low-fat milk in place of buttermilk. It won't change the consistency much!

To cut the sugar - My mom tried it with half sugar/half Splenda and had good results!
   - Use unsweetened coconut, if you can't find it, you will just want to use at least 1/2 c. less sugar or it will be way too sweet!
   - Use plain bran flakes or Total and add your own raisins. You wouldn't believe how much sugar is in Raisin Bran!

For fun - Add shredded carrot, zucchini in place of coconut, or add other dried fruits (cranberries, cherries...) and nut varieties

This is such an easy and versatile recipe. Hope you enjoy!

Those look & sound delish! Has anyone tried making them using unsweetened applesauce in place of the oil? I may have to try them that way....

Not yet, but do try and let me know how it works! I also have a killer applesauce snack cake recipe if you want...  Grin

I haven't tried any cereal besides a bran flake type, but I suppose any flake would do, it would just change the flavor a bit.
