3 c - All Bran cereal

2.5 c - hot water

1.5 tsp - baking powder

1 box ‘Better Crocker Sweet Reward†brownie mix *I usually canâ€t find this, so use whatever ff/lf brownie mix the in the store


Soak cereal in water for 5 min (will be pasty)

Add brownie mix and baking powder; mix well

Line muffin tins with linter or spray with Pam

Divide mixture into 24 muffins

Bake in preheated oven 350 degrees F for 20-25 min.


If you choose to add 1/2 bag of chocolate chips, add 1 pt. Otherwise – this makes a lot – you can stick them in the freezer and take them out one at a time for a treat. Really good with Cool Whip.




This is a recipe I got from a friend of mine (who brought me some) and they are delicious! Warm them up to make them even tastier!

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
