Multigrain Muffins

Similar to Mimi's Honey Bran Muffins in taste
But with a different texture

But Much Better!

This recipe is my own concoction that developed after several adjustments. I wanted to create a muffin that was similar to the Honey-Bran Muffins at Mimi's restaurants. They are heavy and sticky and taste great! They are sticky to the point that some landlubbers may choose to eat 'em with a fork.

The Stuff:

Wet Stuff:
2 eggs
3/4 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Molasses
1/2 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Canola oil

The Other Stuff:

1 1/3 Cups Cooked Multigrain cereal*
1/3 Cup ground Wheat Chex cereal
2 1/2 Cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp   baking soda
2 tsp   baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 cups raisins

 

Mix the wet stuff, then add the damp stuff, then the drystuff and enough raisins or currents to make you happy

Fill large buttered and foured muffin thingies abour 3/4 full with the batter and bake at 350 F for 35 to 38 minutes until they pass the toothpick test.

They will not raise as much as you might expect. So what, these are heavy, sticky little buggers.

* I used Bob's Red Mill 10 grain hot cereal cooked per package directions, then cooled. You usually can find multi grain mixtures in the bulk food section of good super markets. If it is uncooked the muffins would most likely have the consistency of road gravel.

The muffin pictured here was made with a generous hand full of currants and some golden raisins thrown in for luck.
