Healthy muffins easy to make and store.

Ingredients:

2 large eggs (can substitute)

150ml pot natural low-fat yogurt (substitute if vegan or diary intolerant)

50ml rapeseed oil

100g apple sauce or pureed apples (find with the baby food)

1 ripe banana mashed

4 tbsp clear honey (can use vegan alternative)

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 blueberry

2 tbsp mixed seed (we used pumpkin, sunflower and flaxseed)

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tin with 12 large muffin cases. In a jug, mix the eggs, yogurt, oil, apple sauce, banana, honey and vanilla. Tip the remaining ingredients, except the seeds, into a large bowl, add a pinch of salt and mix to combine.

  2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix briefly until you have a smooth batter – don’t overmix as this will make the muffins heavy. Divide the batter between the cases. Sprinkle the muffins with the extra oats and the seeds. Bake for 25-30 mins until golden and well risen, and a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool. Can be stored in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

Protein-rich brunch or breakfast in 10 minutes.

Ingredients:

1 tsp rapeseed oil

3 tomatoes, cut in half

4 eggs

1 tbsp chopped parsley

1 tbsp chopped basil

Method:

  1. Heat the oil in a small non-stick frying pan, then cook the tomatoes cut-side down until starting to soften and colour. Meanwhile, beat the eggs with the herbs and plenty of freshly ground black pepper in a small bowl.

  2. Scoop the tomatoes from the pan and put them on two serving plates. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir gently with a wooden spoon so the egg that sets on the base of the pan moves to enable uncooked egg to flow into the space. Stop stirring when it’s nearly cooked to allow it to set into an omelette. Cut into four and serve with the tomatoes.
