Oat bran muffin


I love muffins. I am not a huge health muffin fan, I am more of the sweet type muffin.

A while back when I went to buy Jungle oats for my dad, I accidently bought the wrong Jungle oats, instead of buying oats, I landed up buying oat bran.

I tried freely giving it away to family members and work colleagues, because I have never heard of oat bran, or even come across a recipe that contains oat bran.

Yesterday my mum was hinting that she was lissing for a muffin to have with her tea.

I was Paging through The Joy of Vegan baking, when I came across a recipe that guess what, actually contained oat bran.

I was sceptical that this would turn out to be a very healthy card board tasting muffin, but I was greatly mistaken.

The best part is when the muffin is still hot and you slice through it and it gets smothered in warm blueberry jam… delicious.
