I’m always on the lookout for muffin recipes that are more nutritious but still yummy, reasonably simple, with ingredients already in the pantry. I adapted this recipe I got from my sister a number of years ago to suit our family’s allergies.
8 Weet-bix, crushed (great fun for the kids)
Equivalent of 2 eggs worth of No Egg plus 2 tbsp extra water than the recommendation – although I’d add the extra once everything is in only if you think you need to.
1 cup SR Flour
1 cup brown sugar (you can also use white or a combo)
125g Nuttelex, melted
1 Tbsp Vanilla Essence
1 cup sultanas and dried cranberries (I often just use the cranberries and don’t put as much in – they’re expensive!)
Combine all the ingredients and put into muffin pan. You’ll find it still a thick mixture but just work quickly so that the weetbix don’t steal all the moisture! Cook at 180degrees for approximately 15-20min or until cooked (obviously!).
These muffins are quite delicious, especially the surprising little crunch you get from the Weet-bix bits.
I often halve the recipe and make mini muffins instead. The kids like them better that way. Personally I like them big 🙂
