Karey says: “These muffins are really filling, can be frozen and are perfect for kids’ lunchboxes or for a great sustaining snack at the office. Feel free to substitute the fruit for other seasonal options. I have used raspberries instead of the banana and they take on a whole new life! I find yoghurt gives them a nice texture while the Weet-Bix adds a really nice malty flavour.”
