Ingredients

  • olive or canola oil spray
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 200 g low-fat natural yoghurt
  • 2 tbs canola oil
  • 1 egg
  • mix-ins- choose from the list below or create your own!

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Lightly grease a 12-hole muffin tray with oil spray.
  2. Mix the flours and sugar together in a large bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the yoghurt, oil, egg and mix-ins
  4. Add this wet mixture to the flour and sugar mixture and stir until just combined. Be careful not to over-mix.
  5. Spoon into muffin tray and bake for 20-25 minutes, until lightly golden and a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Note: This mixture will make 24 mini muffins. Smaller muffins will cook quicker so check them after 15 minutes.


Variations

  • Banana-rama: 2 mashed bananas + 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • Coco Jambo: 1 small can crushed pineapple (well drained) + 2-3 tbs dessicated coconut
  • Halloween: 3/4 cup grated pumpkin + 1 tbs allspice
  • Apple-y ever after: 1 grated apple (skin on) + 1 tsp cinnamon + 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • Berry-licious: 1 cup fresh or frozen berries
  • Tutti-fruity: 3 tbs chopped dried fruit.
Comment: Storage: Individually wrap in cling wrap and freeze for up to 3 months and place in lunchboxes still frozen. They will be defrosted by recess time.

Healthy tip!

Having a party? Serve vegie sticks and water crackers with salsa rather than high-fat chips and dips.

    Hi Jeanette, A couple of things you could try are being careful not to over-mix the batter, and taking muffins out of the pan soon after they come out of the oven to make sure they don't keep cooking. You could also try adding some extra banana to the batter. Cheers, G

    I have made this recipe up on two separate occasions and the muffins have come up a bit dry. Any suggestions to rectify the outcome?

    Hi Rachael, Great question! We usually have nutrition information for all recipes, but because each flavour will be different we couldn't squeeze them all on one page! One of the banana-rama muffins has about 700 kJ (166 Calories). Cheers, A

    Hi Anne, I haven't tried freezing patty pan papers before, but I just did a quick search and the internet seems to think that it will be fine! I reckon give it a shot. Would love to hear back about the results, patty pans are a great way to save on dishes! Cheers, A
