Oat Bran Muffin of the Day

This morning I tried a new permutation of the recipe: Peanut Butter and Banana Oat Bran Muffins.

I took the basic recipe, and used the following variations:

  • plain yogurt instead of milk (because that's what we had on hand)
  • a little cinnamon
  • about half a cup of extra-crunchy peanut butter
  • one dying banana that was lying around, dreaming about the composter
  • and then no other nuts or fruits

These muffins are a little more crumbly than usual, but they taste great. Sue is partial to anything with peanut butter.

More recent variations of the recipe have included diced dried mango and chopped dried apricots.

Oh, and by the way! Sue saw the doctor yesterday, who said that Sue's cholesterol is "excellent!" Hooray!

So maybe all these oat bran muffins are indeed paying off health-wise! I encourage you to give them a try. They're not "light an' fluffy," but in my opinion--until the weather gets cold--they totally beat a bowl of gloppy, scalding bran-cereal gruel.
