28 APRIL 2014

Muffins are great, but like most delicious baked treats, they're also pretty bad for you. Now, the occasional full-fat blow out is fine (I wouldn't put so many recipes on here if I didn't think so!), but for every other time your sweet tooth gets the better of you, why not try one of these healthy breakfast muffins. Just as muffiny, nowhere near as many of those pesky calories! Perfection!


125g plain flour
75g wholemeal flour
3 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs, separated
2 bananas, mashed
75g brown sugar
200g rolled oats
125g blueberries
1 apple, diced
3 tbsp sunflower oil
250ml milk
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon


Cut 12 equal sized squares of baking paper approximately 12cm x 12cm in size. Line a muffin tray with these squares and pre-heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius.

Weigh out both types of flour, the oats, baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mix together in a large mixing bowl. Make a small well in the centre of your dry ingredients and to it add the egg yolks, milk, oil and mashed bananas. Mix together until ally he ingredients are combined, but do not over mix - a lumpy mixture is good.

In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold gently into the muffin batter, along with the apple and blueberries. Spoon the mixture into your individually lined muffin tray, and sprinkle each with some rolled oats. Bake for approximately 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.
