Oat and Chocolate Raisin Muffins

April 24, 2013

Saffy’s Sweet Touches

Although I am still learning and am nowhere near the standard I would like to be in cooking I like to incorporate my own sweet touches into recipes to make them that extra bit special to me.  I had some left over hand-made chocolate spread, raisins and oats.  I had to make a muffin with these ingredients.  The last batch of muffins I made in early in the week were quickly disappearing so I made a lovely batch for the rest of the working week.  This cheered my mother up, I wanted to make sure she had some lovely food to look forward to after running errands.

This recipe was adapted from The Complete Low – Fat Cookbook (Bay Books, 2003).



125g self – raising flour, 150g wholemeal self – raising flour, 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 150g porridge oats, 55g soft brown sugar, 185g raisins, 30g milk chocolate, 1 egg, 2 tbsps vegetable oil, 90g honey and 300ml skimmed milk.



1. Sift the flours into a large mixing bowl.
2. Add the bicarbonate of soda.
3. Add the oats and brown sugar and mix the dry ingredients well.
4. Melt the milk chocolate and mix with the raisins in a small bowl.
5. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and break in the egg.
6. Mix then add the vegetable oil, honey and skimmed milk.
7. Combine the ingredients well then gently fold in the chocolate raisins.
8. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
9. Divide the muffin mix into 12 muffin cups in a muffin holder.
10. Bake the muffins for 20 minutes.
11. Leave to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before serving.
