Scrumptiously Healthy Banana Muffins with Bran

These healthy banana muffins are my all time favourite! I just love this muffin recipe. I have given it to so many people over the years as everybody just loves them. I think it is pretty much flop-proof so anyone who has never baked before can make these with such ease.

For a bit of variety you can try adding some nuts or different seeds and raisins. You could even try adding some dried apricots cut into little pieces or try a mixture of grated apple and mashed banana. The options are endless.

These muffins are really healthy snacks for kids and can become part of your breakfast recipes collection too as they can be a great addition to a quick healthy breakfast - just grab one on the run.

Tasty and healthy banana muffins

I don't konw about you, but I often have bananas that have become over-ripe and am always looking for banana recipes so that I can use up my over-ripe bananas. This is a great recipe for using those ripe bananas. I've even discovered that I can put my ripe bananas in the freezer and use them when I need them.
