Baby Bran Bites are tasty little morsels, loaded with fiber and a few surprise ingredients. These powerful mini muffins make a nutritious snack or portable breakfast. Baby Bran Bites are also the perfect portion size for toddlers and fit nicely in their small little hands. Whip-up a batch, enjoy half now and freeze the other half for later.

Before we go any further, I want to tell you about a gift I received from my step-daughter, Sarah. You may remember her as a former beauty pageant winner, later turned judge and coach, in a previous post titled: My Interview with a Beauty Pageant Judge.
Anyone who personally knows Sarah readily admits that she is incredibly talented and artistic. From, singing, to cooking, designing wedding and shower invitations, illustrating coloring books, writing newsletters and publications, painting canvas art, and much more, there really isn’t anything she can’t do.
Last fall, Sarah visited a pottery painting studio. She painted a plain plate with henna-style designs and in the center, she highlighted the name of this blog, Blessed Beyond Crazy. When she was finished painting, the studio fired the plate in a kiln which sealed her design. Sarah then presented the plate as a Christmas gift to me. I think it’s awesome and a gift I will cherish forever!!!
Okay, moving on. Let’s talk a little more about Baby Bran Bites. These tiny little muffins are moist and just sweet enough to be a treat. One recipe yields 48 mini muffins.
You may be surprised to learn that along with bran cereal, some other key ingredients are pineapple, molasses, whole wheat flour, oats, and buttermilk. Optional ingredients include nuts, seeds, dates, and raisins. (Tip: generously grease your muffin pan and the muffins will slide right out!)
To retain their freshness, I store Baby Bran Muffins in the refrigerator or freeze them for a later date. I recommend using frozen muffins within one month and refrigerated muffins within a week. (If you look closely you can see some of these scrumptious ingredients peeking out of the muffins.)
