I’ve been feeding quite a crew for some time now as we have some major building/creative projects going on. Most recently the insulation and ceiling of my house. It’s a half round barn so not a particularly easy task, let alone whilst still living and operating within the house. Let’s just say it’s been an experience! Over this time I’ve made mountains of biscuits and cake and scones etc for morning and afternoon teas. Here is a recipe I came up with using oats and frozen blackberries from last summer’s harvest. These are really good texturely and tastewise. Muffins can sometimes disappoint, but not these babies.
INGREDIENTS; 1 1/2 cups rolled oats, 1 1/2 cups wholemeal flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 cup berries (I used blackberries), 2 eggs, 1/4 cup oil, 3/4 cup milk, 1 tsp vanilla extract.
METHOD; Mix the first 6 ingredient together. In a smaller separate bowl lightly beat the eggs, adding the oil, milk and vanilla. Pour this into the larger bowl with the dry ingredients (and the fruit) and fold together. Don’t overmix. Divide equally into greased muffin trays or paper cases. Makes 12 muffins. Bake at 200C for about 15-20 minutes. Enjoy 🙂
