Hi Fibre Cherry Muffins

November, 2018

These muffins are my absolute favourite! I have been making them for over 10 years! They were a staple in my lunch box through out high school and I would take them to Netball carnivals to snack on between games. 

 

The addition of bran and wholemeal flour bumps up the fibre content to help keep you full and support your gut health.
