    About this recipe: These treats are a lot healthier than the average muffin. They are made with bran cereal and sweetened with pineapple juice, brown sugar and honey. To make these muffins, you need to plan ahead of time, as the batter needs to chill for 3 hours.

    • 475ml pineapple juice
    • 290g golden raisins
    • 220g dark brown soft sugar
