The muffin cups will be full, but don't worry, they won't overflow. Toasting the oat bran brings out its earthy, warm, nutty flavour. For a twist on the original, try substituting dried figs for the dates.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups oat bran
  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder

In skillet, toast oat bran over medium heat until lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Transfer to bowl; let cool. Whisk in flour, baking powder, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.

In large bowl, stir together bananas, dates, almond butter, milk, oil and honey; stir in egg. Stir in flour mixture just until combined. Spoon into 12 paper-lined or greased muffin cups.
