I love breakfast muffins finding that early in the morning I can’t stomach much in the way of food and feel awful if I eat too many of the usual baked breakfast goods. This recipe fits the spot for me, using as it does a mix of bran, seeds, unrefined sugar, black treacle etc. Should you wish to nail your colours to the hair shirt brigade you can by all means use wholemeal flour but I personally find that a step too far.
Simple to put together, these muffins keep well and freeze beautifully. Unusually I find I can reheat them briefly in a microwave without the texture becoming claggy. Serve them split open with plenty of salted butter. I can’t think of one thing that tastes worse for the addition of lots of good butter.
