From Scratch

It is with much excitement that I am writing this post to share with you that after a few years of following recipe’s to the letter I have finally gathered the skill and the courage to make up my own.
 
As you know I have been on a bit of a health buzz lately so substituted a number of ingredients in the recipe’s I’ve been using and some how this has helped to unlock my own creativity and given me the confidence to write my own recipe from scratch.

It really wasn’t as difficult as I thought it would be, but I think the trick is to ensure that you get your quantities correct – enough liquid ingredients vs dry ingredients. So recipe No.1 is done and dusted, very excited to share some more from the “Cupcake Couture Diary” – thought this would be a cool name for my own recipe creations.
 
So here they are… my Apple and Peach Oat and 4Seed strudel Muffins

Loaded Health Muffin(1)

Not to toot my own horn, but they really were a great hit. You know what most people hate about health muffins  are how dry they are, but these mini bombs of flavor were moist and light. They also baked to a nice golden brown with a bit of a chewy crust. The fruit wasn’t overly visible and the 4 seeds gave a nice little crunch to every bite.

If your keen to try them out, drop me a line and I’ll share it with you, they make +/- 24 units. Oh and 3 of the star ingredients is the Almond Milk, Organic or Regular Rolled Oats and the 4Seed Mix (Sunflower, Pumpkin, Flaxseed, Sesame). These seeds are so super healthy and give you an awesome energy boost you need, whether you enjoy them in the morning as a breakfast on the run or afternoon snack.

  2. I hope that you document what you do and what you use because I make up recipes as I go along most of the time and when I find one that is really good I can not always remember what I did and used – the whisky that accompanies most of my more adventurous escapades doesn’t help

    • Hahaha… Des you’re a classic, but so right… luckily I wrote it all down and as I twisted and changed the recipe around to perfect it, I re-wrote it each time… the old fashioned way. But your way sounds equally entertaining so you need to send me some of your run n raisin ice-cream the next time I work on a new recipe and let’s see how it goes from there
