Healthy Hints

Oats provide whole grains and are heart-healthy, so basing cakes and muffins on oat flour is a nutritious choice. Each muffin gives you 2 grams of fibre, which helps keep your digestive system in good working order. The moisture in this mix comes from natural yoghurt rather than from butter or margarine, so you're keeping your saturated fats low.



250 g (8.8 oz) porridge oats flour

1 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp skimmed milk powder

2 tsp garam masala

½ tsp turmeric

2 tsp cumin and coriander powder

½ tsp black pepper, ground

10 g dried yeast

4 tbsp fried onion

1 tbsp fresh garlic, crushed

1 tbsp fresh green chilli, crushed

40 g (1.4 oz) coriander sprigs, leaves and stems finely chopped

¾ tsp salt

2 tbsp olive oil

225 g (7.9 oz) natural yoghurt

250 ml (8.5 fl oz) water
