Oaty Raspberry Muffins

There are times, rare times, when I want to bake, but also mind about being that li-ittle bit healthier. But just because thinks are healthier, doesn’t mean they are going to be baked any less tasty! One ingredient that could always make me feel healthier, even if surrounded by kilos and kilos of chocolate – would be oats.chloes 163

See, as soon as you throw a handful or two of oats into a muffin (or anything baked!) I can feel just that bit better about having a second helping. And once you’ve added some yummy juicy fruit (in this case raspberries) – why stop at two helpings? After all, muffins are best on the day they are made ;)

The recipe for these Raspberry and Oat muffins came from the lovely must-read Bibliocook blog, where the muffins are originally made with blueberries. Having none of these available, I substituted for frozen raspberries, and added a few minutes onto the cooking time. Ooh, these were delicious! The raspberry juices stained the muffin a pretty light pink inside – and they smelled divine! Mmm :) If you’re a muffin fan, then these are most definitely for you. You can find the recipe here. Until next time!

Oats make anything healthy, don't they?

I've been putting off buying that cookbook, but, after seeing your delightful muffins I might just have to reconsider.

They look yummy! I just found your blog when I was googling to see if the BBC Good food recipe for lemon and sultana cookies was online; it is in the 101 book of cakes and bakes which I've just acquired, and I was planning to make them tonight :) I have added your blog to the list of blogs that I follow and look forward to reading about your baking.
