It's quite easy for me to skip breakfast.
I like toast, occasionally cereal, and when I am really feeling naughty I go for a muffin. The thing is... there is nothing naughty about this muffin - it's packed full of bran flakes and oats. OK, it's got some sugar - but that will give me energy, right? And if I'm on the run, I can't take the toaster or milk carton with me.
These muffins are easy to make, tasty and filling - and you can eat them even when it's long past breakfast time.
Oaty Bran Muffins
Makes approx 12
1½ cups bran flakes, slightly crushed with your hands
1¼ cups porridge oats
2½ cups self raising flour (you can use half white and half whole wheat flour if you prefer)
¾ cup soft, light brown sugar
½ cup vegetable oil
2 cups milk (I use semi-skimmed)
1 tablespoon honey
Pre-heat oven to 350º.
Put all the ingredients into a large bowl and stir together until well mixed in.
Spoon into lined or well-greased muffin cups.
Bake for 18-20 minutes until they are springy when touched.
