Overnight Bran and Date muffins

Overnight Bran and Date Muffins

 

With sweet, plump dates and natural bran, how can you resist these Healthy overnight bran and date muffins.  They’re incredibly moist and full of healthy ingredients, and there is nothing better than the smell of freshly baked muffins wafting through the house in the early morning.

Of course someone has to get up and put them in the oven… but here’s the thing… the mixture is made the night before.  All you have to do is mix up a batch of ingredients and leave the mixture, sealed, in the fridge overnight. The muffins can be baked straight away,  but they are so much better if the mixture is left for a few hours.   This mixture will last in the fridge for days, so if you are just making one or two each day it will last the week.

 The kids will love them too, as the dates soften during the cooking into delicious sweet pieces, and they will never know they are eating dates.  They are pretty addictive too, so mix up a batch today and enjoy.

ABOUT BRAN : Unprocessed wheat bran is the outer covering of the kernel, and contains large amounts of necessary vitamins, minerals and protein.
