This is a continuation of my previous post. Here is the recipe for my oats and dates muffins. This recipes makes 10 decent size muffins.
You will need:
1 cup milk, you may use whole or semi-skimmed
1 cup oats
1 large egg
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1 cup self raising flour
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup chopped dates
1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
Preheat your oven to 200C. Grease a muffin tray or line with paper muffin liners.
Combine the milk and oats in a small bowl. Soak the oats and the milk for 10 minutes.
In a separate mixing bowl, beat together the egg and oil then stir in the oatmeal and milk mixture. In another bowl sift together the flour, cinnamon, sugar, baking powder. Stir the flour mixture and the chopped dates into the wet ingredients using a spoon, until combined.
Spoon the muffin batter into the prepared muffin cups until 2/3 full.
Top with dry oats
Bake in a preheated oven at 200C for 20 – 25 minutes or until a toothpick or skewer inserted into the centre of the muffin comes out clean.
