Apple & Oat muffins

I like to bake some healthy oatmeal muffins ... I want to add some fruits to the muffins too .... Ah ha! Apple + Oat ! That's because I've got a new pack of rolled oats and some apples 'idling' in the fruit basket ... lol !

Recipe source from  I halved the recipe and made few slight modifications to suit our taste. Please visit for the full recipe.

Apple & Oat Muffins (makes 6)
70g self-raising flour
70 plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
60g light muscovado sugar
20g rolled oats, plus 1 tablespoon extra
100ml natural yogurt, at room temperature
1 egg, lightly beaten
50ml light olive oil
1 red or green apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

Method :
Step 1
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 6 cups muffin pan with cooking spray or line with muffin cases.

Step 2
Sift flours and baking powder together. Stir in sugar and rolled oats.
Whisk yogurt, egg and oil together. Add to flour, mix until just combined. Do not over-mix.

Step 3
Divide mixture evenly into muffin pans until three-quarters full. Gently push slices of apple into mixture until covered and sprinkle with extra rolled oats.

Step 4
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden in colour and cooked when tested (insert a toothpick and it comes out clean). Cool for 5 minutes in pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Serve warm.

Yum yum .... tasted fluffy soft with some apple crisp.  Complete with a glass of juice/milk or your preferred hot beverage. Wholesome goodness healthy breakfast to start the day !

Enjoy & happy baking! ^-^!
Hope you'll have a great day too !
