Recipe by Georgia Houston from GH Nutrition

Ingredients
2.5 cups wholemeal self-raising flour
½ cup honey
3 eggs, lightly whisked
¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil
½ cup Greek yoghurt
1/3 cup rolled oats, plus extra for sprinkling
1 cup blueberries, frozen or fresh
1 lemon rind

Method

Pre-heat oven to 180C. Place the flour, honey, eggs, oil and yoghurt in a bowl and mix until just combined.

Gently fold through oats, blueberries and lemon rind.

Divide the mixture between 12 x ½ capacity muffin tins lined with paper cases.

Sprinkle with extra oats and bake for 30 minutes or until golden and cooked through when tested with a skewer. Let cool on a wire rack.

Nutrition tip: Muffins have the benefit of being suitable for breakfast or as a snack any time of the day. This basic muffin recipe has been made healthier by substituting for wholemeal flour for added fibre, oats for slow burning energy, yoghurt for a calcium boost, olive oil for healthy fats and the berries for added natural sweetness.

If not consumed within 3 days, wrap in glad wrap and freeze. Thaw out prior to eating.
