Barb’s 10 Grain Muffins

If you know me, you know that I'm always up for a hearty, high fiber muffin in the morning.  One of my favorite breakfasts!  I just made a fresh batch of my Three-Grain Muffins yesterday.  It's a really good recipe- makes a huge batch- which I like. :)  But I realized I had made these a while back and forgotten to post the recipe, so here is YET ANOTHER muffin recipe coming your way. :)

"I love Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain cereal. On the bag was a recipe for some muffins. I made them. OK, but not great. So I did what any other creative cook would have done, I futzed. Trial and error resulted in a fiber-filled muffin that was delicious, moist, kept well in the freezer and best of all, didn’t have the consistency of sawdust."

Barb’s 10 Grain Muffins (penguintrax.com)

  • 1 XL egg
  • 1/2 cup sugar (I use turbinado)
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 cup Bob’s Red Mill 10 Grain Cereal
  • 1 1/4 cups sour milk or buttermilk  (to sour milk, mix a generous teaspoon of vinegar into 1 1/4 cups milk)
  • 1 large ripe banana, mashed
  • 1/2 cup dried coconut (can substitute sweetened & flaked coconut if necessary)

Preheat oven to 400 F. Prep enough muffin tins to make 14-16 muffins (line with paper, use silicone liners with no-stick spray, etc.)
Combine cereal and buttermilk and let stand for 10 minutes.
Cream sugar, butter and egg. Add banana. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients.  Add to egg mixture along with the soaked cereal. Mix until just combined.
Spoon into prepared muffin cups.  Bake approximately 12-15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool in pans for 10 min, then on a rack until thoroughly cooled.
These freeze very well.
