These muffins are supposed to be low in fat and give you energy till lunchtime. What more could you want?
For 12 muffins:
170 g/ 6 oz dried apricots (or other dried fruit)
170 g/6 oz unsweetened museli (we mix our own at baboon HQ so we know its unsweetened and unsalted)
250 g/8 oz self-raising flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
250 ml unsweetened apple juice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil (sunflower is fine is that is what you have)
100 ml honey
1 large egg
1 12 hole muffin tin (or 2 sixes)
12 paper muffin cases
Put the dried fruit, museli, flour and baking power in a large mixing bowl and stir.
Put the apple juice, oil, honey and egg into another bowl and mix.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ones and mix just enough to combine the ingredients but no more than necessary.
Spoon the mixture into the paper muffin cases inside the muffin tins.
Bake in a preheaded oven a 190 degrees C (375 degrees F, Gas 5) for 20 minutes until golden an drisen.
You could do the washing up now but I think its really important to watch them and make sure they are cooking.
You might need to tell them to hurry up and cook and make sure they rise. I often find things won't do things unless you keep telling them to. Come on, come on, come on!!!
Ohhhhh nearly there, they are rising! Yayayayaaa!!
After 20 minutes take them out of the oven. Make sure you use oven gloves won't you.
Leave them to cool for a while and then enjoy!
