Yesterday I was at the CQ Kickstart Sport and Health Expo as a stall holder with all my goodies and services to offer. As an added treat I had baked some delicious healthy muffins that my daughter had made at school the previous day. These muffins have no, yes thats right NO sugar. Ok so they have a little honey which is a natural sugar by far better for you than processed sugar and should be consumed in small doses. As you you will see in the recipe below there is only 1/2 cup to a batch of muffins. These muffins are delicious! The crowd loved them and they were all consumed within the hour. I wished I had baked more! Everybody loved them, even the kids. I wanted to show people and parents that you can enjoy snacks on a healthy level without overloading them with sugar. People were pleasantly surprised so I encourage them to take a photo of the recipe so they can make them at home.
Overall it was a fantastic day! I met some wonderful people, gave away every gift bag I had, half of my newly designed brochures and my muffins were a hit. Thank you to everyone that took the time to talk to me, I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations.
Here is the recipe; supplied by Kim Coverdale, found on Taste.com.au
Banana and Blueberry Muffins
2 cups of self raising flour (use wholemeal if you like)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cup rolled oats (use 1/2 cup for mixture)
2 eggs, lightly beaten
200g tub natural yoghurt
80g polyunsaturated margarine, melted
2 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1 medium green apple, peeled and grated
1/2 cup honey
3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries (can be substituted for raisins/other berries.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Line 12, 1/3 cup capacity muffin holes with large paper cases. (i sprayed my tin with olive oil and didn’t use paper cases).
Sift the flour and cinnamon into a large bowl, stir in 1/2 cup rolled oats and make a well in the centre.
In another bowl add eggs, yoghurt, margarine, banana, apple and honey. Stir to combine.
Add this bowl to your flour mixture and stir till ingredients are just combined, fold in blueberries (if using).
Divide the mixture between paper cases, sprinkle with remaining oats and bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Enjoy!
