Those of you from South Africa surely know 'Bokomo' - The Goodness of Home Being, and I'm quite sure many others know too - at least here in Mauritius. We get quite a lot of their assortment and personally I prefer Bokomo to other brands.
Did you know there's a recipe at the back of 'Right Start - Bran Flakes' box?
This box has a 'Bran Muffins' recipe, which I had to try! :)
Here's what you need:
Mix dry ingredients...
... with the liquid...
Mix together and in the muffin cups it goes, top with a little oats.
(Don't forget to lick the spatula!) :))
Being a South African recipe, I should have thought of the size of the muffins tin! :))
The recipe says 'makes 12', the dough didn't look that much, but.... I got 12 small and 5 big muffins! Should have used the big muffin tin right from the start!
Bran Muffins - makes 12
500 ml (Sasko) self-raising flour
1 ml mixed spice or nutmeg (I used nutmeg)
1 ml cinnamon
10 ml (Moir) baking powder
15 ml Right Start Bran Flakes
60 ml soft brown sugar or 30 ml molasses
1 small apple, peeled and grated,
or a medium grated carrot
(use 125 ml soaked Werda dried carrot)
125 ml (Safari) sultanas or seeded raisins
80 ml oil
250 ml milk, buttermilk or Bulgarian yogurt
Handful of (Bokomo) oats for topping
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Place paper muffin cups into muffin tins and spray with non-stick spray (I used a little bit oil)
Sift the flour, spices and baking powder into a mixing bowl.
Stir in the flakes.
Stir in the sugar or molasses, apple or carrot and raisins with a fork.
Beat the eggs with the milk and oil until smooth.
Add to the dry ingredients and stir with a fork until just mixed and still lumpy.
Fill each muffin cup three quarters full and top with a little oats.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a skewer/toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool on a wire rack.

After reading the recipe, I felt cheated! Why? Bran muffins... and the recipe contains not more than 15ml bran flakes, which is almost nothing to me!
In addition, I added more bran flakes, a little bit oats, grated coconut, more milk and cardamom.
They turned out yummy! It should be healthy too; not too much sugar...
