Come with me into the raddest era and enjoy a super easy recipe that is a great tummy filler for those busy days!
We are heading into the year 1985 and diving into a Readers Digest cookbook of Quick, Thrifty Cooking. If the cover doesn’t bring back some nostalgia then nothing will. 😁
If you want a filling snack with lots of goodness then these High fibre muffins are the one for you!
We start off with the ingredients list:
2 cups unsifted plain flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Baking soda
1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats (the fine ones)
1 cup of Whole bran cereal/Bran or Wheat Germ (I used wheat germ as that’s what I had in the cupboard, the quicker the better)
1/2 cup Raisins or for that extra fibre boost – Prunes!
2 Eggs lightly beaten
1/2 cup Golden Syrup
The tag line for these is “These muffins are full of flavour, high in fibre, B vitamins, protein and minerals” (Perfect if you need a bit of regulating 😁).
Only two bowls to dirty and two to wash, easy as. The oven gets popped on at 180C and I combined all of the dry ingredients in a big bowl. The smaller bowl gets the eggs, buttermilk and golden syrup. Remember if you don’t have buttermilk just use regular with a teaspoon of lemon juice or white vinegar stirred in and left for 5 minutes.
Pop the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients in the larger bowl and make sure that it is all slowly mixed in, sometime you need to watch out for those little pockets of flour. 😉
Spoon the batter into patty pans lined with patty cases (cupcake cases for those young ‘uns). Making sure they are about 2/3 full.
Bake then in your preheated oven, I had to do two trays as I used the smaller size, for 15-20 minutes until they are ‘Clean toothpick’ cooked through.
I urge you to give these a go as they are a great tummy filler, channel your 80s housewife and let me know what you think below. ❤️
