Healthy Berry Oat Muffins
These Berry Oat Muffins are delicious AND a healthy treat option. They’re made with wholemeal flour, no butter and are sweetened with honey instead of refined sugar. Plus they have the goodness of fruit and oats. Oh and did I mention they’re really tasty!
Makes 6 large muffins
- 125g wholemeal flour
- ½ tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp baking soda
- Pinch salt
- ¼ cup quick oats
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- 3 tbsp brown rice bran oil
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 egg (room temperature)
- ½ cup natural unsweetened yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- ½ cup frozen berries
- 2 tsp raw sugar for sprinkling (optional)
- Pre-heat oven to 180°C. Grease a muffin tin.
- In a mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, oats, cinnamon.)
- In another bowl, mix together the oil and honey. Beat in the egg. Add in the yogurt and vanilla essence and mix to combine.
- Gently toss the frozen berries in the flour mixture to coat the berries (this stops them from sinking down during cooking).
- Pour the oil and honey mixture into the flour mixture, folding until just combined (don’t overmix).
- Portion out the mixture into the muffin tin (makes 6 large muffins). Sprinkle each one with a little raw sugar (optional).
- Bake for approx. 20 mins until the cakes spring back in the centre when gently touched.
- Use frozen berries, don’t defrost first.
- Coating frozen berries in a little flour stops them sinking straight to the bottom while cooking.
- You can add a teaspoon of lemon zest if you like.
- If you’re trying to reduce sugar a good tip is to really ramp up other flavours, like spices and seasonings. So in this case, cinnamon and vanilla.
