Banana bran muffins

I made these muffins from Alison Holst's Marvelous Muffins book. They were very good. I've used a handful of her muffin recipes from this book over the years but this was a new one to try.

Here is the recipe:

3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup wholemeal flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup wheat bran
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
Optional: 1/2 cup chopped walnuts and 1/2 cup sultanas (I omitted these but might include them next time)

50g butter
1 egg
1 1/2 cups mashed banana
1 tsp vanilla
milk to mix

Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl.
In another bowl, melt butter, stir in egg and add banana and vanilla.

Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients. Add milk until you have a mixture of normal muffin consistency (comes with experience!). Number one rule for muffins, do not overmix or they will be tough, you should just combine until most of the flour has been incorporated.

Divide mixture evenly into 12 oiled muffin pans. Bake for about 15 mins at 200deg C.
