    1 cup sugar
    20 oz. raisin bran cereal
    3/4 cup dried cranberries (optional)

Spray muffin tins with low-fat non-stick spray (ie. Pam).
Fill each tin 2/3 full with mixture.
Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees.

    I used 1-1/2 cups splenda rather than 1 cup splenda, 1 cup sugar. I made this without the raisin bran flakes - I used just bran flakes, then split the batter between 2 bowls, added 1 cup chopped dates to one, and 1 cup raisins to the other. I got 44 muffins out of this recipe. - 8/13/07

    Yummy! I used 1.5 cups of natural sugar instead of the splenda and sugar. It's my preference to use less sugar rather than use artificial sweetners. This was still a bit too sweet for my tastes and I'll just use 1 cup natural sugar in the next batch. I'll keep this handy! Very tasty! - 8/3/07
