12 Sunflower Seed

Having been quite pleased with the results from the book 1001 cupcakes, cookies and other tempting treats I decided to try yet another. The occasion is breakfast for friends. They had to be pleasing for small children yet interesting for the adults and just a little bit healthy. I went for the sunflower seed muffin with oats and raisins number 105.

The results were a little bit stodgy. Perhaps a few too many sunflower seeds. If I did them again (and I’m not sure I would) I’d leave out the sunflower seeds in the mixture and add a little spice for flavour.

For the muffin:

  • 6tbsp sunflower oil
  • 140g plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder (I accidentally just used 1tsp but then realised and added a tbsp)
  • 140g porridge oats
  • 115g soft light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 250ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 100g raisins
  • 125g sunflower seeds

Heat the oven to 200C. Mix the dry ingredients together including just 100g of the sunflower seeds. Mix the wet ingredients together. Add the wet to the dry. Divide into muffin cases. Sprinkle the remainder of the sunflower seeds on the tops and bake for 20 minutes until golden and firm.
