Tasty Oat Muffins

Hello everyone, I hope you are all keeping well and making the most out of the lovely weather, if you are in the UK. I recently made some oaty muffins which I thought would be great as breakfast muffins because they are filling, healthy and tasty. Sometimes it can get quite repetitive eating cereal, toast or smoothies in the morning so its nice to have something different that still has the same breakfast element from the oats, egg, milk and cinnamon. This recipe was something I created and the outcome was really good, the only adjustment you might want to make would be adding a little more sugar if you have a sweet tooth but other than that it tastes pretty good.

Oaty Muffins (makes 6 large muffins)

Ingredients

100g plain flour

80g oats

65g soft brown sugar

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp bicarbonate soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp cinnamon powder

1 egg

75ml milk

75ml oil

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and put 6 muffin cases on a baking tray.
  • In a bowl mix all of the dry ingredients together. Then in a separate bowl whisk all of the wet ingredients together then pour into the flour mixture stirring until everything is combined.
  • Evenly spoon the mixture into the cases and sprinkle some extra oats on top.
  • Bake in the oven for 30 minutes until golden and leave to cool completely before eating.

What I eat in a day

Hello everyone and thanks for clicking on my blog, I hope your Sunday is going well. So far today I having done my usual morning routine (see previous post) and I’ve just been relaxing. Today I’m sharing the main meals that I eat in a day. Usually, I don’t make a habit of eating loads in the morning although it’s known to be the most important meal of the day, I prefer something small. Lunch is usually something light or quick and dinner is probably the meal I most look forward too.

Breakfast: 1 cup of water, 1 brioche and a homemade smoothie using 1 orange 1 apple and a handful of mixed berries

Lunch: 1 cup of water and 6 crackers with peanut butter

Dinner: Fried dumplin, chapatis, veg, corncob and fish

This is what I ate for my main meals and there were a few snacks too like the Cool Dorritos and Skittles. I didn’t quite manage my 5 fruits and veg but I hope this is a bit of inspo for when you plan your next meals. I have read something that stated lunch should be the bigger meal to give the food more time to be digested before you go to sleep and the body rests which does actually make sense but I do what works for me and try not to eat dinner too late.

Let me know in the comments what your favourite mealtime is, mine is dinner.
