Super easy, quick and healthy whole wheat muesli muffins
Today I’d like to offer you a healthy muffin recipe. This whole wheat muesli muffins recipe has less sugar, whole wheat flour, muesli and lots of fruit. I love it that it’s so easy to make, super quick to prepare and makes a great breakfast next to a glass of milk or coffee. I though of an idea to offer my little ones a healthy breakfast where I get to trick them into eating more fruit and whole wheat.
Guess what, a dessert like recipe always does the trick! The whole wheat muesli muffins were a big hit, they only managed to last until the next day. Fair enough the adults helped a bit with a muffin or two and in some cases a little more than just that.
I’ll definitely make this recipe again, in fact I plan to make it a regular on our table. Why not, it’s got all the good things: whole wheat, plenty of fruit, muesli etc I’ve learnt a few things while making this recipe:
- The original recipe wasn’t mentioning any milk but I found I need to add half a cup as the muesli tend to expand and absorb all the fluids in the ingredients.
- Next time I’ll have the muesli mixed up with some milk first to get them moist. I like my muffins super soft and moist and this simple trick will help.
- I’ll also double up the ingredients as the original recipe was stating the whole mixture will be good for 20 muffins while I got 12 only. Not enough for a big family like ours!
All in all, the whole wheat muesli muffins is a recipe I’d recommend anytime. It’s not too oily, not to sweet, has loads of fruit, both dried and fresh and most importantly it takes 10-15 minutes to make. With more practice I believe 5 minutes will be enough to prepare this super tasty recipe.
