My friend, friend told me about a recipe she found in a women's magazine and suggested that I try it out. It looked really healthy with all the oats and berries in the ingredients. Since I am back home, where about half of the family is pretty much concern about sugar intake level. I decided to give this a try. Instead of using berries, which is really expensive here, I decided to use frozen strawberries instead.
The strawberries looked so good even though they were frozen strawberries. So shiny and juicy. (actually they taste pretty sour.)
Before entering the oven.
Fresh out of the oven. The dash of red looks really pretty and simply screams "hello summer"!
Thought it was not sweet enough, because the frozen strawberries were pretty sour. So I added some strawberry jam for added sweetness! Pretty healthy breakfast I must say.
Here is the recipe, (Made some changes to the original ingredients)
80g oats ( I used Muesli instead.)
55g brown sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, extra
15g baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
235ml fresh milk ( used 1 cup yoghurt instead)
45ml Vegetable oil
2 tbsps butter
290g fresh or frozen berries ( Used strawberry instead)
1. Preheat oven to 220 deg cel. Meanwhile, grease a 12-hole muffin pan and line with paper cupcake liners
2. Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, baking powder and cinnamon in a mixing bowl. Stir in milk, egg, oil, butter and extra brown sugar. Fold in berries. Continue mixing until well-combined
3. Spoon mixture into the prepared muffin pan, filling each paper case only 2/3 full.
4. Bake for 25 - 30mins or until golden brown. Serve Warm.
*If you prefer muffin that are less sweet, leave out the 1/4 cup brown sugar, extra
*If using frozen berries, thaw them and drain the excess water before folding into muffin mixture
*Its advisable to use extra brown sugar if berries are sour.
