Healthy Breakfast Muffins

 بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Running around getting children ready in the morning, link book signings, a trip letter that they just pulled out of their school bag all crumpled up in need of an urgent signature, creased up P.E kit that that you spent late Sunday evening ironing! Leaving you very little time to have a healthy well balanced breakfast, so you grab anything and rush out of the door! Sound familiar?? :)

Well here is a breakfast muffin that you can make well in advance for such chaotic mornings. Jam packed with amazing ingredients that will help sustain blood sugar levels and keep you satisfied up till lunch. :)

So here is what you will need.


2 eggs
2/3 cup of brown sugar
1 tspn vanilla extract
3 riped bananas (1 cup) 
1/2 cup of homemade applesauce 
3/4 cup of milk
1/2 cup of ground flaxseeds (Also knows as linseed)
1/2 cup of ground dried sea buckworth berries ( you may omit if you cannot find)
1 cup wholewheat flour
1/2 cup of oats
1.5 cups of oatbran
1.5 tspn baking powder
1.5 tspn baking soda 
1 cup of fresh raspberries
2/3 cups of dark chocolate chips


To make 1/2 cup of applesauce you will need:

3-4 medium sized sweet apples
3/4 cups of water
1/4 cup of sugar (optional, if apples are sweet i would omit this part)
1/2 tspn cinammon (optional)

Add all ingredients to a pan, cover and cook over medium heat for 30 mins until the apples are soft enough to mash. 

(This applesauce is delicious on top of yoghurt and cereals such as oats and porridge)


1. Pre-heat oven to gas mark 4.
2. Add all the wet ingredients into a bowl and mix with hand mixer.
3. In a separate bowl add all the dry ingredients and mix well.
4. Then bit by bit add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix by hand as not to over mix.
5. Grease muffin tray with butter and fill each one by 2/3.

6. Bake for around 15-20 minutes.
7. Remove and leave to cool.

Delicious moist breakfast muffins.

Flaxseeds are a source of healthy fatty acids, and fibre, as well as being high in antioxidant's. Studies show that flaxseeds can help lower risk of diabetes. So why not grab a bag from your local health store. Grind the seeds before consumption as whole flaxseeds sometimes pass through undigested. So grind away and sprinkle over your cereal in the morning or add to soups. :)
