Low GI Oat bran and banana muffins

These are really tasty, and great if you're diabetic, or have other low GI needs. Or just want a healthy alternative!

Warning though that this is from a book that has a tendency to use every bowl you have.

Turn the oven onto 160C

Sift a cup of flour, two teaspoons of baking powder and half a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (baking soda in some countries) into a bowl. Add in a cup of oat bran. (In Dunedin, the only place where I have found it is that Indian supermarket just off Moray Place? If you're a Dunedinite and you don't know about that place, it is also the only place in Dunners you should ever buy spices, fyi.)

In a second bowl combine a quarter of a cup of sugar, a tablespoon of canola/sunflower oil 2 small grated apples and a mashed banana. Oh, and two egg yolks.

Add the dry ingredients gradually into the wet ones, mixing with a fork until combined.

In a THIRD bowl (I warned you!), beat the egg whites into soft peaks. Fold them into the mixture.

Put in muffin trays, bake for 30-40 mins or until you can skewer them cleanly.

NOM. Delicious.

Me: Thumbs up
Husband: Thumbs up.
Fussy teen: Thumbs up.
