  • 1 1/2 cups All-Bran cereal
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin butter (See Note 1)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  • In a large mixing bowl pour boiling water over 1/2 cup bran cereal, mix in oil and set aside. In another bowl mix egg, sugar and buttermilk.
  • To the wet bran mixture add sifted flour, baking soda, salt and remaining dry cup of bran. Add the wet buttermilk mixture to bran mixture and stir.
  • Stir in apple butter, nuts and raisins. Mix thoroughly to incorporate completely.
  • Scoop into 12 muffin (paper lined), or greased muffin pan or baking stoneware and bake for 16-18 minutes. (See Note 2)
  • Remove from oven and drizzle with honey (optional) and let cool. Serve as is or with butter.


  1. I use 10 ounce jars of the pumpkin butter found in the cooking and jam aisle at my local market and use 3/4 of a cup.
  2. Depending on size of muffins, as long a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean you’re good.
