How to make super healthy bran muffins...

As you would have seen from my day in photos the other day, I made Bran Muffins!! So, as promised, here is the recipe for you...

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 egg
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.
Recipe makes 24 mini muffins or 12 regular size, however this time I got 24 minis AND 6 regular. A regular sized muffin is 150 calories, if anyone cares about that.

They are super nice with some natural yoghurt and make a great, quick and healthy morning or afternoon snack.

Enjoy :)
