Another muffin recipe for your little ones to enjoy. I am trying to do as many different variations as these are great for taking out with me for snacks and great for add into my sons lunch box too. As I was making these, I was about to add my usual 2 cups of flour, when I thought, hey I will add just the 1 cup of flour and then 1 cup of oats. I wasn’t quite sure how they would turn out, but these were actually really yummy.
Apple and Sultana Oatmeal Muffins
makes approx 16 muffins
- 1 cup of all purpose flour
- 1 cup of old fashioned oats
- 1 tablespoon of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- 1 apple, peeled and chopped
- 3/4 cup of sultanas
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of plain yoghurt (I use a high fat content one, as I find it is nice and creamy)
- 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup of apple sauce (unsweetened)
- 1/4 cup of brown sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 200c or 400f (gas mark 6)
Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl.
Put the old fashioned oats in a mini food processor and just do a couple of spins of the chopping blade to chop up roughly.
Add this into your flour, along with the apple and sultanas.
In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs and sugar. Then gradually whisk in the yoghurt, oil and apple sauce.
Add this into the flour and fold until all ingredients are combined.
Spoon into muffin cases and bake in the oven until slightly golden for approx 20 mins. A wooden skewer entered through the centre should come out clean.
Allow to cool in muffin tin and then transfer to a wired rack.
