About the Wholemeal Banana & Chocolate Muffins

Whether you're looking to spice up your breakfast, or for a fluffy fruity snack on the go. Our Banana & Chocolate Chip Muffins are a winner every time - but for this recipe we've made a 75% swap for Allinson's Wholemeal Flour, meaning you can enjoy the deliciously moreish flavours of fresh muffins, but with more added fibre into your day. The ripened smashed banana gives these muffins a moist texture and naturally sweet flavour, so why not give your standard muffins an extra health boost with the additional fibre Allinson's Wholemeal flour contains - trust us, you won't be able to tell!

Looking for more fabulous fibrous swaps just like this? We've got a handful of baking classics with a simple fibre swap which we know you'll love just as much. Our Ultimate Wholemeal Sticky Toffee Pudding contains 75% more fibre, whilst still being rich and indulgent. Or for something a little lighter why not give our Wholemeal Victoria Sponge Cake a whirl?
