I’ve been perusing the internet recently looking for recipes that can still taste amazing, but not be as bad for you as their usual counterparts. I stumbled across a recipe for oatbran muffins that intrigued me. I was on Dukan for a while & oatbran was a staple food, but the recipes for cooking with it were heinous. Anyhoo, Sunday = Extreme rest day so I baked.
The original recipe is from Ambitious Kitchen, I didn’t add applesauce & used whole eggs instead of the whites only. Here is my version:
- 1 2/3 cup oat bran
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 small or medium very ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup plain greek yoghurt
- 2 medium eggs
- ground vanilla pods
- tablespoon of agave
- 1 bag of dried, pitted cherries
I put it all in one bowl & mixed it together, I prefer paper cases to their silicone friends, so opted for those too. Oven went on 200 degrees & the muffins were baked for around 18 minutes, tada!
They’re a lot more moist than I was expecting – as I mentioned earlier I’ve trialled Oatbran before & it wasn’t overly appetising…..more like eating little bits of grit. I’ll have to remember this one & make them again some time!
