If you’ve been told to follow a low-fibre diet, or want to have a slightly healthier muffin then this recipe is for you. Having a low-fibre diet can be quite restrictive; these muffins are made partly with wholemeal flour and oats, to add some fibre but should be more gut-tolerable.
These muffins can be great as snacks or a pudding and can be enjoyed by almost everyone with a stoma – if you want to make it lower- fibre, then just use plain flour and leave out the oats.
We’ve added banana for extra potassium as well as chocolate chips and vanilla extract for some tastebud decadence – we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
