These yummy oaty muffins are great for breakfast or with a cup of coffee. If you fancy experimenting try swapping the apple for either 1 mashed banana or two to three chopped kiwis. Yes, kiwis. Sounds wrong but actually they work really, really well.
225g porridge oats
750g milk with a squeeze of lemon juice in
3 tbsp butter
200g brown sugar
300g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp ground allspice
150g chopped apple, tossed in lemon juice
Soak the oats in the milk and lemon for an hour. Cream the sugar and butter together and add the eggs and oatmeal goo. Sift in the flour and other dry ingredients and continue to mix until smooth. Last but not least fold in the fruit.
Spoon into muffin cases and bake at gas 6 for 25 minutes.
