Addie staff in the kitchen: Breakfast muffins

This recipe is extremely simple to whip up and make a wonderful snack at any time of the day.

Made from a mixture of fresh fruit and wholewheat flour, these muffins will be a fav with children looking for something sweet and moms looking to give them a nutritious snack.

This recipe is taken from Ashleigh Levin’s new cookbook Home Cooked & Heart Warming.

Step 1: Gather your ingredients. Ours were sponsored by SpringsGate Pick n Pay.

Ingredients

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3 Cups wholewheat flour.
  • 3tsp baking powder.
  • 1/2tsp salt
  • 1/2tsp ground cinnamon (I added 3tsp for good measure).
  • 1/2 Cup desiccated coconut.
  • 1Tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1 Cup seedless raisins.
  • 1 Cup fresh or frozen blueberries (I used frozen mixed berries which worked wonderfully but did leave my mixture pink).
  • 2/3 Cup brown sugar (can be reduced if your bananas are very ripe).

Wet ingredients:

  • 1 Cup full-cream plain yoghurt.
  • 1/2 Cup honey (or to taste depending on how ripe your bananas are or how sweet your blueberries are).
  • 2 Large eggs (if like me you don’t eat eggs you can either add 1/2 a banana for each egg as I did, or 1/4 cup of unsweetened apple sauce for each egg).
  • 1/4 Cup coconut oil.
  • 1/2tsp vanilla essence (or to taste).
  • 1 Cup milk.
  • 1Tbsp smooth peanut butter (I added 3 Tbsp simple because I love the taste with the fruit).

Directions

Step 2: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line a 12-cup muffin tray with grease-proof paper (or use spray and cook).

Step 3: Stir the dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Step 4: Mix all the wet ingredients together in a jug.

Step 5: Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix thoroughly.

Step 6: Drop a generous scoop of mixture into each muffin cup.

Step 7: Bake until a toothpick or skewer inserted into the muffins comes out clean. The recipe says this should take 15 – 20 minutes, however, in my oven it took 45 minutes. The times needed will depend on your oven and whether you use thermofan (cooks quicker than regular convection) or not.

Step 8: Enjoy with your favourite beverage.
