Healthy Muffin Medley

Before you go on holiday what do you do with your left over ingredients?

Well as a treat for my friends at work I thought I would use them up to make some super duper healthy muffins.

I decided to make two flavours:

  • Cherry Coconut Muffins
  • Chocolate and oat Muffins
Like all my recipes I wanted to Duckey-fy these and make them healthy so here is my recipe!

RECIPE: Healthy Cherry Coconut Muffins and Chocolate and Oat Muffins.

You will need:

60g unsalted butter
1 egg yolk, 2 egg whites
100g brown sugar
110g wholemeal flour
6 Ripe Cherries
1 spoonful of cocoa powder
20g raisins
Handful of oats
50g dessicated coconut

To make the cake:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees

2. Remove the unsalted butter and eggs from the refrigerator to allow them to warm to the room temperature, in a bowl add the butter and sugar

3. Add the butter and sugar into a bowl and whisk then add the egg yolk

4. Mix the 2 egg whites in another bowl

5. Add the egg whites to the mixture and divide this into two bowls

6. To make chocolate oat muffins add raisins and cocoa powder into one bowl then sprinkle in some oats, to make the cherry muffins add the coconut and stir in then once in the cake mold de-seed a cherry and push into the batter leaving the stalk.

7. Cook in the oven for 15 mins

8. Remove and then cool.

These make great little treats for all to share.
