If there’s ripe banana’s in my house you can bet there will soon to be something in the oven. I wanted to make a muffin and I wanted to do something a little different. Someone on my Facebook page had asked for a bran muffin.. I remembered I had a box of Kellogs all bran buds in my cupboard so I thought, well lets give it a go.. I get asked a lot how or where I find my recipes, and honestly my brain never shuts down 😉 I am always thinking of different ways to mix things up and I just experiment.. 99% of the time I am happy with the end result.. These banana bran muffins are delicious.. my husband and daughter loved them too 🙂 And they are only 4 smart points each!
