This is a really simple recipe for healthy breakfast muffins. Great if your on the go, or to busy in the morning to have a proper breakfast. Just grab one and go, or pack one in your lunch box. These are light and not to sweet but completely yummy.

They're great for kids too, but you can add chocolate chips instead of the raisins to make them a little more kid friendly.

  • 1/4 Cup Soft Brown Sugar / Demerara
  • 1/2 Cup Raisins

  5. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture until fully combined
  6. Prepare a muffin tin either by greasing the sups with a little butter or using muffin cups
  7. Place in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes - if your oven is a little temperamental like mine turn the tray around half way through baking so the muffins get equal heat.
  8. After 15 minutes check the muffins using a sharp knife, if the knife comes out clean they are done. if still a little sticky return for 4-5 mins more.
  9. Once done place on a wire rack to cool. Enjoy warm or allow to cool completely.

      Thanks @anglnwu. The oil makes them a littel healthier. They arent meant to be too sweet though as they are breakfast muffins, but I think I would add even less salt, or none at all next time as I think it would be even better without them.

      Not to sure on the calories but they shouldn't be that bad as there are lots of oats, You can easily be creative, this is like a basic recipe to start with.
