Healthy Good Morning Muffins

I got this out of a newspaper health supplement, it's a recipe by a nutrition adviser. I've tried them myself and they make a great alternative breakfast, especially warmed up with a little butter. If you like a bit of sweetness use sweetened coconut or you can soak your raisins in apple juice overnight.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4.
  2. In a mixing bowl combine wholemeal flour, oatmeal, baking powder, cinnamon, grated carrots, raisins, chopped walnuts, coconut and the grated apple.
  3. In a second bowl mix the yoghurt, banana and baking soda, once combined add the eggs, melted butter and vanilla essence.
  4. Blend well and then stir into the flour mixture until the two are combined.
  5. Don't overbeat.
  6. Bake in muffin tins for approx 20 minutes.

I left out the coconut and the butter (added a little more banana and flax). They were really tasty!

Even though I had to leave out the walnuts because poor, this was still an interesting combination of all things healthful. Like many other have noted, it's a little lacking in sweetness. But that doesn't necessarily make these muffins "healthy". It was a bit too heavy on the fat with so much butter and yogurt in my opinion. If I make something like this again, I might also add more spices, more like for a carrot cake. Overall, this recipe was interesting but not the best. Might tweak it and repeat though. :)

I have been making these, or a variation of these, for years now. Thanks so much. I upped the oatmeal amount and lowered the flour amount, have added sunflower seeds and more raisins, have made with oil instead of butter, and also tried with 2 eggs... A great base recipe in my opinion. Thanks again!
