Pog’s Genius Muffins

I know this is an incredibly un-English thing to say, and I wouldn’t usually, but…I am a genius!

As you may have gathered from previous blogs, I’m on a low-fat-gallstone-friendly-diet.  Which mainly consists of tuna.  Even the bits that don’t consist of tuna are quite boring.

Yesterday I made some low fat muffins.  They were a change from the tuna, I admit, but they weren’t exactly inspiring.  So today I fiddled with the recipe and not only can you whip them up in 5 minutes, but they taste bloody gorgeous AND they are low fat!  It only seemed fair to share my moment of genius with you (because, let’s face it, it doesn’t happen very often…).


 Pog’s Genius Muffins

 Pop the oven on at 170 C

Throw the following into a bowl:

  • 200g s-r flour
  • 50g muscavado sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2-3 mashed bananas
  • A handful of sultanas
  • A few handfuls of bran flakes (crunch them in your hand as you pop them in)
  • About ½ pack of chocolate drops (it’s low fat not no fat…)

 Make a well in the middle

 Throw the following into a jug:

  • 200ml of skimmed milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2tbsp of…it’s supposed to be sunflower oil, but I thought that sounded pants so I used that ‘Buttery Light Touch’ oily type stuff.  Well it’s only 2 tbsp…

 Whisk the jug contents and pour into the well in the bowl.  Mix together so it becomes a bit of a slushy mess (they called it a ‘batter’ in the original recipe).  Divide between 12 muffin thingys and cook for 15 minutes.

Et Voila!

I can guarantee they’re more interesting than a tin of tuna.  If you’re more sensible than me you might want to go for sultanas or chocolate drops, but frankly, where is the fun in that?  :o)

    The question is how many did you eat??? If I make a batch of muffins (low fat or normal) I find it impossible not to eat more than 1. So if you made 12 and you don’t have hungry/greedy kids like me, who ate them all…..?!
