Basic Oat Bran Muffin Recipe

I’m sure we can all agree that there’s nothing quite like a sweet, moving experience. If all of the movies in the world were made for me, they would all have happy endings. As a matter of fact, I’m sure we could all use more happy endings in our daily life. And, with that, I present thee with a basic bran muffin recipe. A romantic comedy, if you will, where everything comes out alright in the end.

Preheat oven to 350°F.


  • 1 1/2 cups wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cups oat bran (Bob’s Red Mill Oat Bran Cereal works great)
  • 1  cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk

Mix until well combined. Line muffin tins with cupcake or muffin liners. Use just more than an ice cream scoop full to place into each liner. Bake for about 20 minutes or until fork poked into the middle of one comes out clean. Makes 12 muffins.


Sweet. Moving. If you enjoy a little twist in your romantic comedies, just add a few fresh blueberries coated lightly in white flour before gently stirring into your batter and the good news is, you can still enjoy the happy ending.
