  • 140g runny honey

  • 3 tbsp. veg oil
  • 160g all bran cereal, crushed
  • 65g porridge oats

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and grease or line a 12-hole muffin tin.

  2. In a bowl, whisk together the wholemeal flour, wheatgerm, cereal, porridge oats, baking powder, bicarb and ginger. In another, whisk together the milk, yoghurt, honey, eggs and veg oil.

For extra sweetness, throw in some more dried fruit like dried apricots, or for a treat add some nuts or chocolate chips. Recipe makes 12.
