Oat Bran Muffin Recipe


All of my clients and friends know that my #1 recommended food is oat bran. I have previously posted on the topic, so read here if you want to learn more about why this is such a "super food". 

For those that are not into porridge, overnight oats, or smoothies with oat bran, here is a recipe I give to clients for a muffin version. Easy to make, simple to eat, and all the while pretty nutritious! I don't think it has the same effect in terms of fullness as when you eat a full bowl of it, but you are still getting many of the oat bran's benefits. Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:  
1 banana, medium (7") 
1 large Egg 
2 tbsp honey    
2 tsp baking powder, double-acting
1 cup skim or 1% milk
2 cup  Oat Bran, dry 
1 tbsp avocado or canola oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown packed sugar

DIRECTIONS: 
1. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F. 
2. Line 12 medium muffin cups with paper baking cups. 
3. Combine dry ingredients. 
4.  Add milk, egg, honey, mashed banana and oil; mix just until ingredients are moistened. 
5. Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake 14-17 minutes or until golden brown.

Makes 12 muffins


TIP: I buy my oat bran from the bulk bins at Whole Foods (and sometimes it is in bulk at Wegmans). Otherwise, you will find oat bran in the "healthy food"/gluten free aisle of most supermarkets. Bob's Red Mill, Hodgskin Mill, and Old Wessex are common brands around.
