Road Trip Inspiration

Holidays are here! Many of us are setting off down to the coast or on holiday somehwere n our beautiful SA to celebrate the festive season with family and loved ones. Road trips are not easy to navigate –  not only because the men won’t ever ask for directions! But, also when it comes to choosing snacks that are healthy but still satisfying. These cinnamon bran muffins are quick and easy and great to make ahead of time and keep handy as a snack en route. Smear them with low fat plain cottage cheese or a dollop of low fat plain yoghurt for a perfect breakfast on-the-go.
