    Serves: 8 

    • 1 1/2 cups (75g) wheat bran
    • 1/4 cup (30g) oat bran
    • 1 cup (125g) flour
    • 1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
    • 2 tsp baking powder
    • pinch salt
    • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 cup sultanas
    • 1/3 cup mixed seeds and/or chopped nuts
    • 1 medium carrot - grated (with skin)
    • 1 large apple - grated (with skin)
    • 1/3 cup (75g) low fat/salt reduced margarine/spread
    • 1 egg beaten
    • 1 1/2 cups skim milk

    Preparation:30min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Mix the dry ingredients together (first 9 ingredients listed).
    2. Add the apple and carrot and coat with the bran/flour mixture.
    3. Melt the margarine in the microwave for 30 seconds and pour over the other ingredients. Stir in just a little.
    4. Beat egg and milk together and pour over other ingredients. Mix with spoon until just combined.
    5. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes so that bran can soak up some of the milk.
    6. Use a heaped tablespoon of mixture for each muffin onto your greased muffin tray (I just use a baking tray).
    7. Bake at 180 degrees for about 15 minutes.
    8. Serve plain or with margarine spread and/or jam.

    These are just right when you fancy something sweet, but they are very healthy too! I froze them very well.  -  25 Sep 2016

    Taste gorgeous but it took me way more than 15mins to be ready. My oven was preheated. 😕  -  27 Sep 2017  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
