Oat & bran muffins

A tasty and easy breakfast, done in no time! I serve these with jam and cheese or only butter but they are also divine on their own as they are very moist and packed with cranberries and walnuts! To save time the batter can be made ahead to bake the next morning. I use my large muffin tray but a standard size muffin tray will also work…you will just be left with 12 muffins instead of 6. Who’s complaining? The muffins are a real treat for breakfast or quick bite and makes the perfect lunchbox snack!

1/3 C Canola oil
1 Egg
2 Tsp Vanilla essence
1 1/4 C Buttermilk
160ml Brown sugar
1 C Flour
1 C Wheat bran
1/2 C Oats
2 Tsp Baking powder
1 1/2 Tsp Baking soda
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/2 C Dried cranberries, chopped
1/2 C Walnuts, chopped

Preheat oven to 190 degrees and generously grease a muffin tray with non-stick spray. Using a handheld mixer, mix oil, egg, vanilla essence & brown sugar for about a minute. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt into the wet mixture and beat well. Add buttermilk, wheat bran and oats and beat until combined. Fold through cranberries & walnuts. Place the tray in the oven and bake for 35 minutes or until brown on top and a skewer comes out clean.

From my kitchen to yours, with love x
