Recipe – Breakfast Muffins

Raspberry and Seed Breakfast Muffins

I’ve really been into making muffins recently – obviously the huge gooey ones you see in bakeries hit the spot sometimes, but I’ve been trying out different recipes that are healthier and full of nutrients compared to a store bought one. That way its slightly more acceptable to be enjoying these almost every day!

Personally for me I am all about a sweet breakfast, so these have literally been a life saver this week as I’ve just been able to grab one (or two) and leave for work with a healthy and filling breakfast all ready to go.

I also find with healthy recipes that you seem to need a list as long as your arm of all the different weird and wonderful ingredients, which sometimes is fine, but I find on more occasions than not I use these ingredients once and then they are shafted to the back of the cupboard never to be seen again. But after having a look around the items you need for this recipe are ones that can be used over and over again with all different types of healthier baking options. (especially apple sauce, wholemeal flour, cinnamon and coconut oil)

So for these breakfast muffins you will need:

  • 200g of wholemeal flour
  • 50g of rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 2 tsp of Cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp of honey or agave nectar
  • 1 ripe mashed banana
  • 100g of normal apple sauce
  • 50ml of coconut oil (or if you’re not a fan use olive oil)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup of Raspberries
  • seeds for decorating (I used Pumpkin and Sunflower)

The recipes is very simple and requires 2 large bowls and a spoon! Simply mix all of your wet ingredients together – mashed banana, eggs, vanilla extract, honey, apple sauce, coconut oil.

Then in the other bowl add all of your dry items – flour, cinnamon, oats, baking powder.

Mix the wet into the dry and stir until combined. I then added my raspberries and folded them in. Pop your mixture into bun cases and sprinkle them with your seeds of choice and even some extra oats if you fancy. I managed to make 12 muffins from this.

Put them in the oven at 180 degrees for 25-30 mins or until golden brown on top.

I love mine in the morning with some extra fruit on the side.


Also TOP TIP – Store these in tuppawear for the week, or they can be kept in the fridge. If they aren’t all gone by the end of the week then freeze them for up to a month!
