I haven’t baked in ages, mainly because it’s not been great to have sweet things laying around while we try and get fit and keep weight down. Today, however, work was getting on top of me and the urge to do some baking to cheer me up became too strong.
I went back to what kicked off my baking late last year – quick, easy and healthy bran and oat muffins from The Healthy Food Guide.
Simply combine one and a half cups of self raising flour, sifted, one cup of rolled oats and half a cup of firmly packed brown sugar. Stir in a third of a cup of melted low fat margarine then add one egg whisked with one cup of milk. Stir in one and a quarter cups of mixed fresh or frozen berries.
Spoon the mix in to a greased muffin tray, you should get 12 muffins, and bake for about half an hour at 180 degrees.
Healthy and delicious.
