These Breakfast muffins are scrummy, light and full of goodness. They are super easy to make, and most kids will love them as they still taste sweet due to the honey and fruit. Due to the natural sweeteners used, these are much better for them, and great if you are trying to get more fruit into their diet.
I found this recipe on BBC Goodfood – which is an amazing source with a vast amount of recipes. I made these for some lovely people at work who had been working very early shifts, so I thought they desserved a nice breakfast treat.
2 Beaten Eggs
150ml Low Fat Natural Yogurt
50ml Rapeseed Oil
100g Apple Sauce
1 Mashed Banana
4 tbsp Clear Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
200g Wholemeal Plain Flour
50g Rolled Oats
1 1/2 tsp of each Baking Powder, Bicarb of Soda and Cinnamon
A hand full of mixed seeds and more oats for the topping
Firstly mix together all of your wet ingredients into a small bowl (2x beaten eggs, 150ml natural low fat yogurt, 50ml Rapeseed oil, 100g apple sauce, 4tbsp clear honey, 1 tsp vanilla extract and one mashed banana). Put everything in the bowl all together and stir everything until mixed together.
Next, in a separate bowl, mix together all of your dry ingredients (300g wholemeal flour, 50g Rolled Oats and 1 1/2 tsp of each baking powder, bicarb of soda and cinnamon). Mix together and then pop in the blueberries, i’ve used frozen fruit here and its absolutely fine to add them into the mix still frozen as they will thaw and cook through when in the oven.
Mix everything together and generously fill 12 muffin sized cases. Sprinkle over the top of the muffins some more of the rolled oats and the mixed seeds.
Bake in the oven at 180°C/350°F/ Gas Mark 4 and bake for 25 minutes until cooked through.
I can’t tell you how amazing my kitchen smells when these are baking. I want to nibble them immediately when they are out of the oven.
These will be fab to make if you have friends coming over for morning tea if you want something more healthier, but still feel like you are having a treat. They are also great for the kiddies packed lunches – my girly loves them. Go on, give them a go, and enjoy!
