Low fat and tasty – Blueberry bran muffins

These tasty and low fat muffins worked really well as something to pop in your lunch box. They are best eaten within 4 days. This is another recipe from Julia Le Clerc’s Made by Hand. Again I recommend buying this book as it provides healthy baking recipes and some tasty dinners too.


  • 1 cup bran flakes
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1tbsp honey
  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 1 free range egg, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup wholemeal flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries


  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius, line 12 hole standard muffin tin with paper cases (they are quite fragile once baked so the cases worked well).
  2. Place bran, sugar, honey and apple juice in bowl to soak for 5 min. Stir in beaten egg and add dry ingredients. Stir just enough to combine. Gently fold in blueberries.
  3. Spoon mixture into paper cases and bake for 20-25 minutes, muffins should be firm and golden brown.
