Bonnie’s Bran Muffins

I was first introduced to these muffins, when Bonnie and I worked together at the hospital. I can’t remember why she made them, but we often had potluck dinners. I suspect she brought them to one of the events. I rarely bake bran muffins, but would never try another another. They have such an “old time” feeling. A real comfort food! They have the right amount of moisture and are not dry. The batter can be stored for up to 6 weeks in a covered container in the fridge! Make up a batch of dough bake fresh muffins daily for 6 weeks! Another idea to take on a boat, if you have refrigeration.
