|A perfect bite-sized snack|
2 cups baking bran
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup sultanas (or substitute)
1/2 cup mixed nuts and/or seeds
1/4 cup golden syrup
1 cup milk
1 cup mashed bananas
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl
Put milk and golden syrup in a jug and warm in microwave to just melt the syrup, then beat in egg and banana.
Fold wet ingredients in dry mix.
Spoon muffin mix into tins.
Bake at 190° for 10-15 mins or until lightly brown.
Here are some substitutions you can make if you like too...
- You can substitute the banana for 1 cup of grated apple or pear - skin and all
- Replace 1 cup of the bran with 1 cup of oats
- Substitute the sultanas for some other dried fruit - I used chopped dates this time but you could use cranberries, apricots, or anything you like
- I never use the full amount of golden syrup, if you don't want muffins too sweet then use less. I am also going to try substitute the golden syrup with apple puree/sauce next time I make them.
They are super nice with some natural yoghurt and make a great, quick and healthy morning or afternoon snack.
