The Malignant Ginger

Healthy cakes that taste like washing up sponges

2014-07-10 14.46.55

Yesterday I baked these super healthy, sugar free and fat free muffins to fill the fake hunger the steroids are giving me. Despite tasting like little sponges soaked in banana and cinnamon, there are only 4 left now! If that description of them gives yo the urge to bake them, here is the recipe (taken from here).

  • 2 large eggs
  • 150ml pot natural low-fat yogurt
  • 50ml rapeseed oil
  • 100g apple sauce or pureed apples (find with the baby food)
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 4 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g wholemeal flour
  • 50g rolled oats, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 1½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1½ tsp cinnamon
  • 100g blueberries
  • 2 tbsp mixed seeds (we used pumpkin, sunflower and flaxseed)

To cut along story short, mix all the wet ingredients together separately and do the same with the dry ingredients, then combine into one bowl. I doubled the quantities above as I live with people that are greedy piglets and eat everything in sight!
