This is the best 6 Week Bran Muffin Refrigerator Recipe I have ever tasted! My mom used to make these, and then I carried on the tradition with my daughters. They are a moist delicate bran muffin that you can make with different things every time you “bake a batch“! Sometimes I add raisins, dates, bananas, cranberries, grated carrots, or whatever sounds good at the moment!

This 6 Week Bran Muffin Refrigerator Recipe is named that since you can keep the batter in your refrigerator and bake the amount you desire each time you bake a batch. These literally melt in your mouth, you can’t stop at just one muffin, I promise.

Don’t you just love the smell of bran muffins baking in your kitchen? I used to bake a batch just before my girls would come home from school. You can add so many different fruits and vegetables from your pantry. Let me know what you would put in your 6-week bran muffin refrigerator recipe when you bake a batch, I would love to hear!

How do I store the cooked muffins?

I like to store mine in airtight containers like Tupperware. They will stay fresh for 2-3 days. They will dry out in the refrigerator so I do not recommend storing them in the refrigerator.

Can I freeze these muffins after baking them?

Yes, you can if you place them in an airtight container before putting them in the freezer. They will be good in the freezer for about 1-2 months.

Final Word

This recipe has to be at least 50 years old, and it still tastes delicious! I love that I can turn the oven to 400 degrees, scoop the dough in the muffin tins and I have hot muffins in 20 minutes. Cooking from scratch is so easy and it’s critical we teach our children and grandkids to cook at home. May God Bless this world, Linda

      Hi Susan, they are ALL BRAN “deals” not flakes. I almost put a picture of the box. I should have gone with my gut. They are down the cereal aisle usually the top shelf because they are not what the kids would want to run and grab. Its a white box with something like 100% Bran on it as I remember. I hope this helps. Hugs! Linda
