It was a lousy afternoon and I felt like eating something and reached out to the bran flakes cereal box only to find out that it was almost over and what was left was about a cup or so of crumbled flakes.
No point in pouring milk on it and making it soggy. I thought maybe I will make a banana cereal smoothie like before then changed my thought and decided to bake something using the bran flakes.
Also I wanted to break the bad baking spell I was going through. Yes the 3 things I had baked during the weeks prior to that, all were a terrible disaster for some unknown reason. So wanted to bake something simple and straight-forward like cookies or muffins.
