The rain here in Sydney has been torrential for days now. So, I’m doing everything that I can to both stay indoors and to entertain the little ones. Baking is a favourite for both Miss F and myself. Something that I always stock in the freezer are frozen berries. So, after searching the net for some wholemeal muffins, this is the best recipe that I could find. The original recipe suggests using vegetable oil but I mixed thing up a little and used rice bran oil.
These turned out really well. They were (yes, they have already been consumed!) really moist and tasted divine. You will have to have more than one. Miss F and I certainly did!
1 1/2 cups wholemeal flour
1 cup rolled oats - can use quick cooking oats
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2/3 cup rice bran oil
1 cup frozen mixed berries - can add more if you like alot
Milk to soften mixture (If needed )
1. Mix dry ingredients together.
2. Make well in centre and add the eggs, oil and milk and mix well. Mixture is meant to be quite dough like however if finding hard to mix add more milk. Once all mixed through, gently stir in blueberries. Place mixture into the large muffin tin (6 muffin tin).
3. Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees for about 25 mins. Make sure they spring back when touched.
