Date and Apple Muffins

Containing plenty of bran, dates and apples, these muffins make it easy to eat healthily.


1 peeled and finely chopped Granny Smith apple

120g chopped dates

60ml maple syrup

85g natural oat bran

1 egg

160ml reduced fat milk

100g self-raising flour

2tsp baking powder

1tsp mixed spice

35g All Bran


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C and line a 12-cup muffin pan with paper cases.
  2. Put the All Bran in a small bowl and soak with milk for 10 minutes.
  3. Sift together spice, baking powder and flour into a bowl. Add apple, dates and bran and mix well.
  4. Whisk maple syrup and egg into All Bran and milk, then pour into dry ingredients. Use a wooden spoon to mix ingredients together until just mixed. The mixture may still look lumpy and doesn’t need to be evenly mixed.
  5. Evenly divide the mixture between the paper cases and bake for 20 minutes or until cooked and golden. Allow to cool for five minutes before transferring to a wire rack so the muffins can cool completely. Eat and enjoy!
