Lunchbox Bakes – Berry and Oat Muffins

BerryOat Muffins

These muffins are pretty tasty and they are easy to whip up.  I find them quite filling too.  They are suitable to freeze for later as well.  Lets get started…

Makes 8.

1 ½ cups self raising flour
⅓ cup caster sugar
1 cup rolled oats
¾ cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon grated lemon or lime rind
1 cup mixed berries (fresh or frozen)

Preheat the oven to 200°C.  Line 8 holes of a 12-hole muffin pan with paper cases.

Combine the flour, sugar and oats in a large bowl.  Combine the milk, egg, oil and rind in a separate bowl.  Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined.  Stir in the berries, leaving a few out to decorate the tops of the muffins.

Divide the mixture into the muffin cases.  Place the remaining berries on the top.  If you want to be extra fancy you could sprinkle some coffee sugar over the tops or decorate each muffin with a banana chip – I had both to try but forgot!  Bake for 20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the muffin comes out cleanly.  Transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool.


So that is my first recipe for Lunchbox Bakes, a new feature that I introduced to you yesterday.  Remember you can take part too and get a link to your blog up on our next Lunchbox Bakes post.  If you are interested, there are more details on the Lunchbox Bakes page :)
