Preheat oven 200°C fan forced.

  1. Beat egg whites in a large mixing bowl for one minute using an electric beater.
  2. Stir bicarb into apple sauce (it will froth) then add to bowl using a wooden spoon.
  3. Combine milk with melted margarine, then add to bowl.
  4. Stir all vegetables, yoghurt, parmesan cheese, bran and combine well. Pepper to taste.
  5. Gently fold sifted flour into mixture in one go, treat as a sponge, DO NOT BEAT as this will make the muffins tough (mixture can look a little lumpy). The less the mixture is moved, the lighter the muffins will be.
  6. Spoon mixture into a muffin tin that has been coated with cooking spray, dividing equally.
  7. Bake 20-25 minutes or until firm to touch in centre. Leave to rest for a few minutes then turn onto a wire rack to cool.
