These muffins are not only yummy but you can divide the batter up into four batches and use the different batches over the course of six weeks. Of course, you can divide it into as many batches as you want or just leave it as one batch. My little girl was gobbling these muffins right up!

2 cups boiling Water
Pour boiling water over brans. Let soak.

2 tsp. salt
5 cups flour
Raisins, dates, nuts, or blueberries may also be added.
Mix all ingredients with a hand mixer. Store in a glass container with a tight cover in the refrigerator. Can store in four, quart canning jars, which makes it easy to pour into muffin tins. One quart of batter makes 12 muffins. Use batter as needed; batter will keep for six weeks.
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 – 25 minutes in greased muffin tins.
