Oh yeah baby. Muffins.
These little beauties are quick to make, tasty like you wouldn’t believe and because of the oats, are really sustaining. Who could ask for more? Adapted from the recipe in this book, Sharon’s oat muffins are epic.
Since I priced these from my weekly shopping receipt, they’re Aldi prices this time – rather than Tesco – but a quick gander at mysupermarket.co.uk should advise on the cost from alternative retailers.
60g oats (5p Aldi)
260ml milk (11p Aldi)
225g plain flour (7p Aldi)
3 tsp baking powder (3p Aldi)
1 egg (15p free range Aldi)
110 – 140g soft brown sugar (21p Aldi – Silverspoon sugar)
1 tsp vanilla extract (unable to price – guess at 3p)
90ml vegetable oil (8p Aldi)
extra bits – choc chips/raisins/cranberries etc about 85g (21p)
Total cost: 94p per batch – 8p per muffin!
Heat the oven to 200C and pop cases into a 12 hole muffin pan (we used reusable ones to keep costs down over time). Mix oats and milk, then set aside. In another bowl mix flour, baking powder and any extras you’re adding.Then add the egg, sugar, vanilla and oil to the oat/milk and mix well. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and mix quickly. Divide the mix between the 12 cases and bake for about 20 minutes.
Then try not to eat them all as they come out of the oven… go on, I dare you!
