Pineapple Bran Muffins - from Kiwicakes test kitchen



Warm up a cold day with these healthy yet flavoursome fruity muffins. They are quick to make and smell amazing!

Mix together with a spatula:

1 t baking soda dissolved in 1 & 1/2 C hot water 
1/4 C butter/margarine, melted
1 egg
1 C brown sugar
1 1/2 C flour and 1 t baking powder, sifted
1 C bran
1 pack Freeze Dried Pineapple Chunks (reserving 12 pieces for the top)

Spoon mixture into Muffin Tins and top with an extra piece of pineapple each. Cook on fanbake 150'C and test with a cake probe after 10 minutes. They cook to golden in 10-15 minutes depending on your oven. Transfer to a wire rack to cool and store in an airtight container. 

Adding margarine instead of butter can make this recipie dairy-free and lower-fat but personally I enjoy natural butter. 

I love these traditional muffins, but boosted with the intense pineapple chunks they are to die for, and you won't feel guilty about enjoying this yummy snack.
