muesli muffins

These are really ugly muffins, but they are so versatile and really easy to make.  Not to mention somewhat healthy.  Please forgive me if  I have posted this before.

Oat and Fruit muffins

1 cup chopped dates

½ cup chopped dried apricots

1 cup sultanas

½ cup chopped almonds

2 cups quick oats

½ cup brown sugar

1 cup SR flour

1 cup skim milk powder

1 cup water

2 beaten eggs

¼ cup vegetable oil



Mix dry ingredients together then add wet ingredients
let sit for 2 min.

Pop into muffin tins.

Put in preheated oven on 170C for about 20 minutes

I often will add chocolate, or banana.  I dont use dates or almonds, I use 2 cups of mixed fruit with cranberries, apricots and other dried fruit.

If your fussy about what you give your kids, maybe go the organic ingredients.

But apart from that they are great to have in the freezer to throw into your bag.  I often take them to work as I know I can eat them quickly. 

Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
