It’s that time of year when everyone starts to get worried about diets – I’ve been instructed by those at Beardy Boyfriend’s work that they’re trying to eat healthier! As a result, I’m trying to make recipes which are a little healthier without going overboard – I still want it to be a delicious treat! I loved these butterscotch oatmeal muffins from Love from the Oven – and particularly loved the idea of making them with a bit more whole wheat flour and limiting the amount of oil in the muffins. Regardless of my attempt to make them a wee bit more healthy, they were still delicious – and very much enjoyed by the builders!
Oatmeal Butterscotch Muffins (adapted from Love from the Oven)
1 1/3 cup of Green vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup melted unsalted butter (yes, you should actually melt it before you mix it in!)
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup (94g) plain flour
3/4 cup (95g) wholemeal bread flour
1/2 cup (100g) brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 cup oats (not pictured, because I was hoping Beardy Boyfriend would not realise I nicked his favourite oats)
1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Mix the yogurt, sour cream, milk, melted butter and vanilla together.
And feel smug about the fact that you make delicious yet healthy (ish) muffins!
