These muffins are great for breakfast on the go, or even a morning/afternoon snack. They are made with sweet Greek yoghurt, a new product from the Jalna range, which give them a delicious flavour and moist texture. With oats and fruit, it serves a healthy dose of the right stuff to start your day! I love to change it up a bit, so every time I make them I’ll add something new like some dates, nuts or seeds 🙂
Although they may sound bland, trust me – they taste indulgent and are very satisfying. They don’t contain butter and have a low sugar content, so they are much better for you than regular muffins.. even my dad will eat these ones!
2 cups plain flour, sifted
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
2/3 cup rolled oats
2 ripe pears, chopped with skin on
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups of Jalna sweet and creamy Greek yoghurt
6 tablespoons vegetable oil
Optional: handful of pumpkin seeds/sunflower seeds/nuts or dates
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius and oil a 12 whole muffin pan with oil spray
2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, spices, sugar, pear, oats and any extras. In these photos, I added pumpkin seeds.
3. In a smaller bowl, combine the eggs, vegetable oil and Greek yoghurt.
5. Spoon the mixture into prepared muffin pan until all mixture is distributed evenly. Sprinkle a few oats or seeds over the tops for decoration and bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden and the skewer comes out clean. Leave for several minutes and then cool on a wire rack. Enjoy with a coffee, tea, juice or smoothie!
I had mine with my homemade peanut butter :O 😀
