Healthy breakfast muffins


I got this recipe from my soon to be sister-in-law, Ashleigh Mommsen, who got it from her Granny in South Africa. It is the perfect, easy and healthy breakfast treat. 

Basic recipe: 

2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 pinch salt
100g raisins/sultanas 
2 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 cups bran
2 cups milk
2 1/2 tsp bicarbonate
1 tsp vanilla essence 


Health muffins

Add any other nuts/seeds you like - sunflower, pepita, chia, poppy seeds, almond flakes, linseeds, pecan nuts, walnuts, anything goes with this mixture! 

  • Cream the eggs, sugar and oil together. 
  • Add the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Cover the mixture and leave in the fridge over night. 

Bake for roughly 25 minutes @ 180 degrees. 

A few (healthy) changes that I made:

Used coconut oil instead of other oil. 

Used almond milk instead of normal milk.

Left out the brown sugar. 

Used a mix of gluten free flour and wholemeal spelt flour (you can try any type of flour - rye, quinoa, coconut etc) 

I added some shredded coconut for a bit of sweetness and a nice texture. 

You could also use dates, prunes, a bit of honey or simply add a banana to sweeten it up a bit. 

This muffin mix will last in your fridge for 30 days if you cover it up. 

*Be careful though if you are using almond milk etc, as if may start to go off sooner.
