Low Calorie Banana Oat Bran Muffins

Jump on board the banana bread craze with this healthy twist.

We all have those weeks where we are over ambitious with the amount of fruit we purchase and they start to look a bit worse for wear after a few days of being forgotten and left to their own devices in the fruit bowl. These muffins are super healthy, surprisingly tasty and are a great on the go snack or alternative to reaching for those chips from the cupboard in the afternoon.
