Oats are widely regarded as one of the healthiest grains you can eat! They are packed with many important vitamins, minerals, and fibre, including heart-healthy soluble fibre. Oat bran is the outer layer of the oat groat (the whole oat kernel) which sits just beneath the hull. While oat groats and steel-cut oats naturally contain bran, oat bran is also sold separately as a stand-alone product on the shelf. Oat bran packs more fibre than whole oats (not that we’re trash talking whole oats over here – they’re pretty awesome too).
These Plum Oat Bran Muffins make a great afternoon snack or grab-n-go breakfast! You can substitute half of the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour if you wish, and feel free to garnish the muffins with extra thin sliced plums before baking.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Grease a muffin tin or line it with baking papers.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, oat bran, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and lemon zest. Whisk together.
Fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients using a rubber spatula until just mixed. Fold in the plums.
Evenly fill the muffin tins with the batter and bake for approximately 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
