 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.
(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

  1. Pre heat oven to 375°F, 190°C
  2. Combine oats, yoghurt and vinegar in one bowl. Set aside
  3. In another bowl, mix apple sauce, oil, eggs & vanilla
  4. In yet another bowl combine the dry ingredients
  5. Pour wet over dry ingredients and stir gently. Then add dried fruit & apple & the oaty mixture. Stir well until all combined
  6. Put into muffin tins or plop onto a baking tray to make cookies
  7. 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.


  1. i love apples, i love cranberries, looks delicious!

  2. They look divine - bet they'll be great x

  3. Yummmmmmmm, I'm feeling hungry now!

  4. Wow, for only 70 calories, they look like quite a hit. Of course, I would eat only three with butter. Does butter count for calories? I think not.

  5. Looking good sweetie! do you wanna follow each other?:X


  6. Much too yummy and much too tempting....don't think I could stop with just two.

    keep well
