I have combined ingredients that have a real benefit for the body – some of which I have listed:
Flaxseed – high in fibre aiding digestion and helping to maintain healthy cholesterol and blood sugar levels, omega 3, vitamin B1, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus and selenium
Chia seed – high in fibre, omega 3, potassium, omega 6, calcium, copper, phosphorus and zinc
Coconut oil – healthy saturated fat
Oatmeal – rich in fibre, high protein, low fat
Spices – ginger and cinnamon – both anti inflammatory
Oat milk – lactose free, low in fat, vitamin E, vitamin B, iron, calcium, zinc and magnesium
The combination also chosen to keep me feeling fuller for longer 🙂 I have used coconut sugar as the sweetener — very little.
Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4 Muffin tin – 12 bun
1 cup of gluten free self raising flour 2 eggs
1 cup of oatmeal 1/2 cup of oat milk
1 tsp ginger 1/4 cup coconut oil – melted
1 tsp cinnamon 1/4 cup coconut sugar
2 tbsp chia seeds 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 tbsp flaxseed
Put all the dry ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Add the eggs, milk and coconut oil and stir until mixed. Divide between 12 the muffins.
Place in the centre of the oven and cook for 15-20 minutes – until skewer comes out clean.
