Recipe: Healthy Muffins!

Sunday, May 26, 2013
Today myself and my sister decided to make some healthy, low fat vegetarian muffins - we are on a bit of a healthy eating thing right now because we have the race for life run, graduation, birthdays and our holiday in next few months. Here is the recipe!
Ingredients: 90g self raising flour
             95g wholemeal/wholewheat self raising flour
             45g caster sugar
             93ml skimmed milk
             63g low fat natural yogurt
             1 tbspn lemon juice
             1 egg, beaten

For the flavourings we used - coconut in a couple with chocolate chunks, blueberries in others and mine had cinnamon in! You can use the basic ingredients above and and your own healthy flavours such as fruits, poppy seeds, nuts and of course some cheeky chocolate if you want. 

1. Preheat oven to 190 Celsius or gas mark 5. 
2. Line muffin tray with paper cases - or you can use silicone ones like we did. 
3. Combine flours and sugar in a large mixing bowl and make a small well/dip in the middle.
4. In a separate bowl whisk together the milk, yogurt, lemon juice and the egg and pour all into the flour/sugar mixture. 
5. Gently stir the contents until everything is combined - do not over mix!
6. Spoon the mixture into the paper cases or silicone moulds and bake for about 20 minutes - then leave to cool slightly. They are best eaten when they are warm!

             
These muffins are great as a snack or with a coffee for breakfast - they are great warm and you can re-heat them once. These muffins are suitable for vegetarians (not vegans) and they contain no salt, no butter and they have less than 150 calories and less than 2.5g of fat per muffin - only with the cinnamon or fruit combinations. 


I hope you like this new post, I might be posting more healthy/vegetarian recipes to get ready for summer! Oh and no week in photographs this week as it was quite boring really (apart from getting assignment results back and sunshine, finally)!
