Banana and Yoghurt Muffins (Wheat Free)

As I am heading back to work next week and my kiddies back to school, I have been making a few things to pop into the freezer to help fill our lunch boxes.

I love these muffins!  I have been making these muffins for as long as I have been a mum.  I have made them for playgroup morning teas, I have given them to sisters and friends as a healthy snack in those early weeks with their newborns, I have made them for my babies for preschool and school recess snacks.  They are on the healthier side with fruit and bran and I have used spelt flours so as to avoid wheat.  It is also a great way to use some of your homemade TMX yoghurt 😉

 I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

    Hi Karen!
    I would like to try these muffins!
    Can i use ‘regular’ white flour instead??

  2. Karen from TTD says:

    Hi Dani, I have made this recipe using regular wheat flour, but I have always used the plain and wholemeal flour mix. So the answer to your question I am sure you can use regular white flour, I believe you will find it a lighter texture, the bran will still give it a bit of ‘substance’.
    Best of luck, Karen
