Blueberry Honey Bran Muffins


Author Notes: I was looking for something quick, healthy and sweet, and these did the trick. I read four of five recipes to get a sense of ratios and flavour combinations, and this is what I ended up with...lizzieshupak

Makes: 15 large muffins or 30 mini ones

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Wholemeal flour (I'm sure you could do half wholemeal, half white, or even use some spelt flour)
  • 2 tablespoons Brown cane sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Cinnamon (I actually used a dessert-spoon so that the flavour would be more subtle)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Baking powder
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • 1 Lightly beaten egg
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 2 cups Runny low-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 2 tablespoons Melted butter
  • 1 cup Blueberries or apples or cherries or dried apricots or nuts (basically have fun and put in what you like)
