Blueberry Muffins - a savvy makeover

Food should taste great, this is something I'm not willing to compromise on. 

Obviously what I think is delicious you might not. These muffins are HIGH in FIBRE and SUGAR FREE! I'm not usually a fan of trying to make baking "Healthy" as often I find you end up loosing the deliciousness of it. I'd rather have the full fat, full sugar, full flavour version than a taste-less and rubber imitation. You can find some fantastic adapted recipes that still taste good but use real ingredients. These are a good healthy muffin alternative that still tastes great and 'cos its adaptable you make them to your personal tastes. We love them with blueberries! 

Here's some simple adaptions ...

Apple and Cinnamon
Banana Chocolate Chip
Raspberry and White Chocolate

We'd love to hear your adaptions!

P.S Don't be fooled these lil muffins will fill you up!

Blueberry Muffins

Prep 10mins / Makes 18 - 24 mini muffins

These muffins are a great addition to lunches boxes for little ones and big ones. Morning/Afternoon Tea or after school snack. Full of fibre they are light but fill you up. No white flour! No sugar!

1 egg
1/4 cup Oil (I used olive, coconut oil would be nice too.)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup wholemeal flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup coconut
1/4 cup unsweetened greek yoghurt

Whisk egg, oil and honey to combine. Stir in wholemeal flour, coconut, oats and yoghurt.
I make this in a mini muffin tin greased lightly with oil, fill each case 3/4 full with mix. Push a Blueberry into the middle of each one.  Occasionally we add choc chips too.
Fan bake at 165 for 10mins

Savvy Tips ...

# Make these "dairy free" by changing out the yoghurt for almond milk.

# Change the Blueberries for other fruits.

# Try adding nuts, seeds and dried fruit - this could be a great breakfast muffin!

# Freeze them for a quick healthy treat in yours or the kids lunchbox!

Happy "Healthy" Baking!
