Alan's bran muffins

    35 min

    These are not too sweet, high-fibre breakfast muffins that turn out perfectly every time. They are so versatile you can add whatever you like, such as mashed banana, chopped dates, coconut or nuts. My two-year-old loves these!

    Altered ingredient amounts. I had about 50ml of liquid left over, so would use less milk & yoghurt next time.  -  07 Jul 2009


    Used different ingredients. I had a couple of black banana,s that needed using so i mashed and added them, made the muffins lovely and moist  -  07 May 2011


    These are lush! I didn't have any wheat germ so i just popped in half the amount in extra bran. I also did not have any honey so used 100ml of apricot jam and i also substituted the ginger with cinnamon ( can you tell i really couldn't be bothered to run to the shops for supplies?? ) This recipe makes around 18 muffins and that's with the cases full to the brim! They were done in 19 minutes with slightly browned off tops but were lovely and moist in the middle. I used my fan oven at 160c Overall, i think i will be making these bran muffins for a long time. Very tasty!  -  30 Dec 2012
