I love porridge. I have it every morning and it wouldn’t be the worse thing to have in the evening (if need be!). So you can only imagine my disappointment when I opened a packet of what I thought was porridge and found oat bran instead – not the best feeling in the world.
Thankfully, I found a few healthy recipes that include oat bran in them. I decided to give oat bran muffins a try and being the rebel that I am, I also added a few of my own ingredients to it:
300g oat bran
100g brown sugar
2 tbs baking soda
2 tbs oil
The mixture is pretty easy to make. Put all the dry ingredients in a bowl and then mix the milk, oil and eggs until well combined. Put spoonfuls of the mixture into muffin cases and cook at 220°C for 15 minutes.
A mini oat bran muffin has no more than 170 calories, which, might sound like a lot for some, but I think it’s perfect. It’s also much better than your average chocolate bar. But if you’re a calorie counter, then I wouldn’t advise you have one of these everyday. Like anything, moderation is key!
Since I managed not to throw in some avocados into this recipe, I believe congratulations are in order
Note: This recipe makes up to 28 mini muffins but with medium-sized muffin cases I’d imagine you’d get about 14 out of it
