Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a 12-hole muffin tray 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, mix briefly until you have a smooth batter, don’t over mix as this will make the muffins heavy. Spoon 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 to the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from the oven, transfer to a wire rack and leave to cool. Store in a sealed container for up to 3 days.

Fabulous breakfast alternative to boring toast etc. Super simple to make, I never really follow baking time guidelines just keep an eye until they're golden brown and insert a skewer to check. Very pleased they're not overly sweet. All the different elements of fruit were identifiable. Don't think I would change anything.

Really tasty and quick to make - perfect healthy snack to carry around when you are on the go!
As per comments, i cooked for a little longer. Also, I used SR flour as didnt have bicarb etc, forgot to put the cinnamon, used sunflower not rape seed oil and used normal oats not rolled oats - and they still tasted great (I also think they are sweet enough)

Declicious and really easy to make, I used (Tesco) Strong Wholemeal Flour, as well as Alpro Soya Yoghurt, No-Egg Egg Replacer, and Agave Syrup to make these vegan. Still tasted great and everyone loved them! Enjoyed with a cup of tea, here's a pic:

Really easy to make. I used sultanas instead of blueberries. Not terribly sweet but this is a healthy recipe! Would definitely make again.

Very happy with these, will make them as a staple. Changed nothing. Very moist with the blueberries so make sure you spread them throughout each cake. Froze them to defrost for breakfast. Ate them on their own but very nice with yoghurt and/or extra fruit. Not very sweet but that was just fine for me. Agree they need an extra 5 mins. Thank you for a nice healthy breakfast recipe - I like baking.

Cooked for the first time and love them! I used self raising wholemeal flour as it was what we had in the cupboard and worked perfectly just omitted the bicarb & baking soda. I can see these being a weekly bake for me and the children.

These were delicious! I found they needed an extra 5 minutes to cook right through - I did use frozen berries which may have accounted for the extra cooking time, but found they worked very well.

will definitely be making these again! I made my own apple puree picked from garden too. The muffins stayed moist and not too sweet. The perfect mid morning snack!

I made thes with gluten free flour and added 1tsp xantan gum. They turned out really well, but were slightly bland. Next time I might try useing syrup instead of honey, or swapping the blueberries for raisins and a tad more cinnamon. My husband took a few with him to snack on when he was traveling, and really enjoyed them, as snacking on the road is a big problem when you are Coeliac.

Really tasty, although a quite sticky. I used 200g of blueberries, and used sunflower oil instead of rapeseed oil. Also, after reading some of the reviews (and tasting the mixture!) I added about 50g of caster sugar.
I would make them again but with less cinnamon. Really great for breakfast!

Really nice, I hate honey and I was worried it would be very strong, but the end result was a really nice breakfast treat!
It's a little dry, but that's what you'd expect - excellent with a cup of tea!

He cambiado el puré de manzana por mermelada de fresa que yo había echo, realmente delicioso pero la próxima vez añadiré una cucharada mas de miel. He usado arándanos secos y la textura ha quedado muy bien ni seco ni demasiado humedo.

These muffins are gorgeous! I made a batch last night and have had one for breakfast this morning. I used "strong wholemeal flour" and cooked for 30mins in 160C fan oven and have found the texture really good. The flavour from all the fruit and cinnamon is fantastic. Would definitely recommend!

I added another 50 g of flour, no salt and switched to maple syrup instead of honey. Was really yummy with a nice crispy outer layer and a soft centre. It also has a perfect level of sweetness although it doesn't have a very fruity taste, as the flour and oat take precedence.

Delicious! Swapped the honey for agave syrup which made them much sweeter, the oats for oat bran and used sunflower oil instead of rapeseed oil as that's all I had.

Very yummy, just had one for breakfast! I only have a six hole muffin tin so this went into the oven in two batches. As in previous comments, my first batch were a little wet, but my second batch came out perfect. Maybe the key is to let the mixture sit for 15 minutes or so?

Nice flavor for a breakfast muffin; the apples and cinnamon really complement each other.

Bit disappointed with the texture (too wet) and wish I'd read the other comments first. Perhaps they did need more flour.

Speedy to make and good results. I thought they would have problems rising due to the wholemeal flour, but they were fine (be generous with the bicarb and BP). I thought the seeds and oats on top might burn, but they didn't (keep to 160C for a fan oven). A good deal less sweet than most other cakes'n'bakes, but I suppose that's why they're justifiable as a healthy breakfast!

I have just made these again but had no apples. I had ripe pears so decided to mash them up with the banana and it worked although you don't taste them. Will use 4 spoons of honey next time.
