  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup oat bran
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 3 tablespoons skimmed milk (use non-dairy milk for low FODMAP)


  • Preheat the oven to 400F/200C and grease or line a 6-mould muffin tin. In a large bowl, stir together all the ingredients until well combined and there are no dry pockets.
  • Evenly scoop out the batter into the 6 muffin moulds and bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes, until the tops of the muffins are golden brown.
  • Leave to cool in the pan on a wire rack before storing or eating.


These healthy oat bran muffins will keep well in a sealed container at room temperature or in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can freeze them in a sealed container or Ziploc bag and they'll keep for up to 6 months.

If you don't want XXL size muffins, bake the batter in 8 muffin moulds. Then each muffin will work out around 125 calories.
