This recipe REALLY made 12 muffins and they're only 125 calories a piece, not to mention, they taste great.

I use 16 sachets of sweet n low sweetener instead of sugar so I increase the wet ingredients (1 extra banana + 25ml extra milk). I also use whole wheat flour instead of white. My favourite recipe when I need to salvage over-ripened brown bananas. 5/5

  • 1 12 cups bran flakes
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (3 medium)
  • 12 cup milk (i used skim)

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease or paper line muffin cups (i sprayed).
  2. Combine cereal, bananas, milk, egg and oil in bowl; mix well. Let stand 5 minutes; stir to break up cereal.
  3. Combine flour, sugar (sweetner), baking powder, baking soda, spices and nuts (if using) in separate bowl.
