I'm cheating a bit, really, with this, but I hope I'll be forgiven. I've been taking part in the "Finding Fun" blog swop with Carolyn & lots of other people. The fun is going on in the kitchen this week, but I'ver not had a huge amount of time for playing. Actually, that's a lie. I've had lots of time, but I've filled it with other Stuff. But I did have time to make some low fat muffin/cookies/rock buns. Which aren't bad at all! So here's my post about rock bun recipes:
*****I don't know what these are going to taste like, as I've made the mix but they're waiting to go in the oven with tonight's baked potatoes.
But here's a recipe for either APPLE CRANBERRY MUFFINS or APPLE CRANBERRY COOKIES
(I've used the same mix for both (!) because I ran out of paper cake cases, so I just plopped spoonfuls of the mix onto a baking tray to make a cookie version. I don't know whether this will work. The recipe was for muffins)
150g oats 100g sugar
140 ml natural yoghurt 100g SR flour
1 tbsp cider vinegar 1 tsp baking powder
85 ml apple sauce 1 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp vegetable oil 1/2 tsp mixed spice
2 eggs 1 apple grated
1/2 tsp vanila essence 100g dried cranberries
- Pre heat oven to 375°F, 190°C
- Combine oats, yoghurt and vinegar in one bowl. Set aside
- In another bowl, mix apple sauce, oil, eggs & vanilla
- In yet another bowl combine the dry ingredients
- Pour wet over dry ingredients and stir gently. Then add dried fruit & apple & the oaty mixture. Stir well until all combined
- Put into muffin tins or plop onto a baking tray to make cookies
- Bake for 25 minutes
This amount has made 29 cookies/muffins. And on My Fitness Pal comes out as 63 calories per muffin/cookie. (Although I was a little cavalier with putting in the ingredients as it's so tiresome to do. So the spices/vanilla weren't counted. I can't imagine they bring many calories to the party though)
I will report on the success or otherwise of these at a later date.
This is not a picture of my apple cranberry muffins. I fear these look too much like muffins!
OK Here's the report: the cookies turned out more like rock buns, as they rose quite a lot. They were very nice. The muffins are a bit denser, but they're okay too. I will be making these again, but in the form of rock buns, I think.
And don't forget my Giveaway. There's more details on the earlier post if you'd like to join in. Foodie items (recipe book plus something else) will be the Prize.
