Sugar-Free Breakfast Muffins: Banana, Walnut & Oat Bran



With crazy long work weeks over two jobs, a reasonably active social life, and a cottage with a broken heater, some mornings it gets REALLY hard to part ways with my electric blanket. How to get that extra ten minutes in bed and not have any breakfast dishes to deal with before running (literally, most of the time) out the door? Muffins, that’s how! These babies can be made ahead of time and are great to just throw in the handbag on those crazy-busy days. Use this recipe as a base and substitute the dates and walnuts for whatever fillings take your fancy.

Make a meal of it:

2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1 cup walnuts, chopped
Handful dates, chopped
2 1/2 cups oat bran
1 tbsp oil
1 tsp baking powder
cinnamon & nutmeg to taste

1. Mix wet ingredients.
2. Mix dry ingredients.
3. Mix together.
4. Spoon the mix into patty pans and bake ’till cooked through & crusty on top.
