More Than One Way To Get Up Early

I've been wanting to wake up before the kids for awhile now but with the move and unpacking and the sheer exhaustion of it all it just hasn't happened. Well, I think little Miss Hanns is breaking in her nasty little one year molars because she just woke up screaming at 4am. Poor Honey. This is the 2nd early morning in a row. I gave her some tylenol, water and fruit and she mainly wanted to just cuddle and chew and rock. So we did. I just laid her down and she is quiet so I am sure she'll fall back asleep. Now, that I am fully awake I have two options, go back to bed or start my day. Sooo, I think I will begin it- its a busy one anyways.... starting with bran muffins :)
  • 1 1/2 cups wheat bran
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Mix together wheat bran and buttermilk; let stand for 10 minutes.
  3. Beat together oil, egg, sugar and vanilla and add to buttermilk/bran mixture. Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture, until just blended. Fold in raisins and spoon batter into prepared muffin tins.
  4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean. Cool and enjoy!            *** recipe found on allrecipes.com***
