Date Nut Bran Muffins

These are very moist and tasty muffins. They are full of healthy ingredients such as bran, shredded wheat, dates, nuts and raisins. This recipe makes 2 1/2 dozen muffins but I made 2 dozen and just filled my tins up a little higher to make bigger muffins. I individually wrap each muffin and then freeze them for lunches or snacks.

Date Nut Bran Muffins


  • 2 cups All-Bran
  • 1 cup crushed Shredded Wheat
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cereals and boiling water; let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. In another large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the eggs, buttermilk and oil.
  4. Stir cereal and buttermilk mixtures into dry ingredients just until blended. Fold in the dates, raisins and walnuts.
  5. Fill paper-lined muffin cups ¾ full.  Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Serve warm. Yield: 2 dozen-2 ½ dozen depending on how full you fill you muffin tins.
