In the words of Jamiroquai I'm going deeper underground.... yes the bags are packed, pressies wrapped, snacks prepared, camera's charged, last bump pics taken and two days till we meet our second little princess.
It's a new adventure and I'm certainly ready for the ride. Her soon to be big sister, may at times think her world is being turned upside down but she will soon realise a bond and relationship larger than life. A new little being who is about to become her best friend for life, and its that, that pleases me most.
It's no surprise Ginger Fig will be a little quite over the next few months as we embark on a few sleepless nights. It got me thinking about which recipe to share with you, one of my favourites and one I simply can't live without - and it's these delightful bran muffins, simple to make, fluffy and soft, and ever so healthy.
This is the only bran muffin recipe you will ever need, you could live solely on these. They are very good at lowering cholesterol and being low GI release energy slowly helping to lower sugar levels and more - thanks to the 3 cups of oats.
Light and fluffy and not to mention super healthy, great for the whole family. They also freeze very well.
