- Prep Time: 15 minutes
- Cook Time: 25 minutes
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: 12 servings depending on size 1x
- Category: Cake, Cupcakes, Cookies and Tarts
- Method: Easy
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 4 Eggs
- Zest of 2 lemons
- 12 tbsp. no fat lemon-flavored Greek yogurt
- 12 tbsp. Oat bran
- 2 tbsp. Sweetener – I used Stevia (if you prefer more sweetness, feel free to add 1 tbsp. extra. You can also use any other sweetener of your preference)
- 6 tbsp. Wheat Bran
- 1 tbsp. granulated sweetener
- juice of 1 lemon
- Preheat oven to 350F / 180C
- Mix all ingredients well.
- Divide batter and spoon into a silicon pan.
- You will notice that I used a regular muffin pan lined with paper casings, as I do not have a silicon pan, but suggest that you use a silicon pan, because the muffins stuck to the paper casings.
- Bake for ±25 minutes.
- Leave in the pan to cool slightly, while you prepare the drizzle.
- Mix sweetener with the juice but don’t overmix it, as you still want to see some granules.
- Use a toothpick and pierce a few holes in the warm muffins and squeeze a few drops of fresh lemon juice onto each muffin.
- Divide and spoon over the lemon drizzle mixture while the muffins are still warm.
- Leave muffins in the pan to completely cool and so doing to form a sugary crust on the top.
- The lemon flavor will seep into the muffin to form a moist and tasty Oats and Bran muffin treat.
- This was my first attempt baking with only oat and wheat bran (yes, strange but true – I did not use any cake or self-raising flour).
- Next time, I will add up to ½ tsp additional baking powder and a bit more sweetener in the batter as suggested above.
- I will also make more drizzle and add more sweetener to the drizzle as these did not have a sugary crust as I thought they should have.
- It still turned out yummy and it’s healthy as well.

Comment from Sean Swart
- Nice, try full-fat yogurt though. The extra fat will help the texture and assist in not sticking as much.
- The extra fat also helps with the rising agent as low/no fat yogurt has added gelatin that will inhibit the raising agents to correctly do their job.
- Also instead of more baking powder (it contains aluminum, thus giving baked goods a slight tinny/metallic aftertaste) add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda (bicarb).
- This will have the additional advantage of breaking down the enzymes (much like those found in beans) in oats and wheat that make one bloat.
