Breakfast: Healthy Muffins

During the week I am one of those people who likes to have maximum time in bed, therefore my morning routine is all about convenience. My skin care and make up routines are relatively simple and I very rarely change things up. I also like to have a quick but filling breakfast. My usual go to breakfasts at work consists of porridge with a drizzle of honey or cinnamon and raisin bagels with honey. I was getting in a rut, so one morning I was browsing my favourite foodie go to, the BBC Good Food website and came across these beauties.



Healthy nutritious breakfast muffins, crammed full of fruit and wholesome wholemeal. They are butter and sugar free but still sweet from the yummy blueberries and bananas. I was sold, I could grab one of these when I arrived at work and enjoy along side my Twining's Lemon and Ginger tea whilst going through my emails. It also meant I had, had one of my 5 a day with out even trying.

I have slightly adapted the recipe to include Coconut oil as it just so good for you and is my new obsession.

To make 12 of these delicious muffins you will need the following.

  • 2 large eggs
  • 150ml natural yogurt
  • 50ml coconut oil
  • 1 mashed ripe banana
  • 4 tbsp runny honey (couldn't escape me the easily)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g wholemeal flour
  • 50g rolled oats, plus extra for sprinkling on top
  • 1 1/2 tsp both bicarbonate of soda and baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 150g blueberries
  • 2 tbsp mixed seeds (I used sunflower and pumpkin seeds)

Pre heat the oven to 180c / gas 4 and line a muffin tin with 12 cases.

In a bowl, add all the wet ingredients and mix until well combined.

In a separate bowl, tip the rest of the dry ingredients into a large bowl and blend together.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix until you have a smoothish batter. It should resemble something like this.



Don't overmix as this will make the muffins heavy and no one likes heavy muffins.

Divide the mixture into your 12 cases, sprinkle generously with your seeds and extra oats.


Bake for 25 minutes until golden and irresistible.




Leave to cool and enjoy, these little goodies last for about 4 days in an airtight container.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to enjoy with a cup of tea.
