I recently purchased a bag of Prewett’s Oatbran with the aim of adding more fibre to my diet. I’m a big lover of muffins but shop-bought ones are often full of sugar and not very filling. So I decided to use Prewett’s recipe for Oatbran yoghurt muffins, however I made some alterations to fit my dietary needs.

Oatbran is great for weight-loss as it keeps you fuller for longer, therefore reducing overrall calories consumed. It is also beneficial for lowering cholesterol as 5 to 10 grams of soluable fibre a day has been proven to lower LDL and total cholesterol. Oatbran is also packed with minerals such as Zinc, Magnesium, Iron and Calcium. So swapping your sugary cereal for oatbran muffins is a great way to start your day!
