Raisin Bran Muffin

The past weekend was a long weekend which made me excited to make lots of delicious meals. Although it turned out to be more of a lazy weekend than anticipated, I think I needed the rest. I have been training hard for the half marathon, and with only a week left to go, I feel strong yet certainly feeling the toll of long runs and speed training.

Friday night I had company and made delicious ginger and lime chicken skewers & blackened chicken skewers. No pics taken so will that post will have to wait. Then Saturday was your typical long weekend bbq with yummy bbq sausages and Sunday a casual noon hour drop in at a friends place turned into beers on the deck and dinner out. So needless to say my weekend of cooking or baking was put on hold.

Monday night I managed to get the energy to bake some raisin bran muffins and tonight I made some delicious balsamic roasted vegetable and goat cheese wraps to be posted soon.

1 1/2 cup wheat bran
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup raisins
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg

Mix the wheat bran and the buttermilk in a small bowl.

In a medium bowl mix all the dry ingredients together and stir in the raisins.

In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the sugar, eggs and oil.

Now stir in the bran mixture and add the dry ingredients tot he sugar, egg and oil mixture. Mix until moist, as with all muffins do not over mix.
Bake muffins at 400 F for 15-18 minutes.

Makes a dozen.

I also wanted to announce that May 13th the results from the LIVEStrong Event hosted by winos and foodies have been posted. There are some wonderful pics and recipes presented in order to raise cancer awareness.
