Kitchen Adventures {craklin' oat bran muffins}

The ingredients:
3 cups Cracklin' Oat Bran
1 cup Pineapple Juice {or water}
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups butter milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup oil
3 teaspoons baking soda

*Pre-Heat Oven to 375degrees

*place oat bran and pineapple juice in medium sized sauce pan and bring to a boil to soften
(you'll be amazed by how fast it turns into a yummy mush)

*mix together the rest of the ingredients while cereal is on the stove

*stir in softened oat bran

*grease pans or use paper liners

*cook 20-30 minutes

*don't let a beautiful light brown color deceive you, these are supposed to come out pretty dark -- if you go by the standard gold color, you will have a very gooey center

*yum yum eat up!

This recipe was given to me via my Auntie Marylin & if she didn't live way out on the west coast, I would run over and give her a million hugs for them! These are seriously so good and so easy.  

I can't wait to make them again and try some different variations to make them just a tiny bit healthier.  Since I rarely have pineapple juice around the house (although water will always work), I am going to try orange juice!  I'm also going to try substituting some of the oil with apple sauce and want to experiment using a wheat flour/all purpose flour mixture.

One last piece of advice that was handed down with the recipe and so I pass on to you -- 
"Don't eat more than 2 a day..."
