“I like to put bran in my muffin recipes and had very ripe bananas and couldn't find the recipe I needed on zaar. This is from Very healthy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup wheat bran
  • 1 cup mashed banana
  • 34 cup milk (I use skim)
  • 14-12 cup brown sugar, depending on how sweet you like your muffins.
