  3. Divide batter evenly among prepared muffin cups.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until tops are firm to the touch and a tester inserted in the centre of a muffin comes out clean.

This recipe was created to use whole wheat flour and less oil than other recipes, making it higher in fibre and lower in fat.
