Healthy blueberry muffins!


So in light of my health kick I decided to try out some healthy breakfast muffins! I am a serial snacker at all points of the day so thought I could make something healthy to snack on. I chose blueberries this time as they're one of the best 'super foods' to include in your diet. I also had heaps left over from my smoothies this week so I didn't want to waste them either! 

These supposedly only have 236 calories in them according to a few recipes online, so they aren't going to damage anyones diets. Well unless you ate them all I suppose.. With these having oats in I did think they would have been a little dry and lumpy but they weren't at all! This recipe made 18 muffins for me, so I did take them all to work. But when I make some this weekend I plan to freeze some of them so they will last a bit longer. 

Recipe:
  • 2 cups of all purpose flower
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of honey fat free green yogurt 
  • 2 large eggs (free range!)
  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of blueberries (or more if you want)
  1. Pre-heat your over to gas mark 4 or 350 degrees
  2. Put cases into muffin tin
  3. Combine the flour, sugar, oats, baking power, baking soda and salt into a bowl and mix together
  4. Combine the yogurt, eggs, butter and vanilla into a separate bowl and mix completely until smooth
  5. Then fold the yogurt mixture into the dry mixture in the same bowl then add the blueberries
  6. Spoon the mix into the muffin tin, and fill as into the tin as your like. The more mixture the bigger the muffins, so all down the preference! 
  7. Bake for around 20-25 minutes, make sure they're springy before you take them out. Or you can pierce a muffin with a skewer and make sure it's dry to check if they are ready.
I loved these (and so did everyone at work), so I will be making them again.. but maybe next time with chocolate chips (yum!).
