Here is the Muffin recipe as well… I LOVE this recipe and though it is called “Six Week Bran Muffin”- I’m not sure I would keep it 6 weeks? I do recall my Grandmother Paunee, (my dad’s mom & my Native American link- yes, she is named after the tribe, in our family tree) keeping it in a big jar in the frig. & it is so nice to make ahead and then just scoop from in the morning. My dad likes regular raisins, I prefer Golden raisins and have also used dates.
