Ingredients

  • soft dried apricot chopped to make 3 tbsp
  • wholemeal self-raising flour 200g
  • ground almonds 50g
  • baking powder 1/2 tsp
  • eggs 2
  • fat-free yogurt 100ml
  • smooth almond butter 100g
  • bananas 2 very ripe, mashed
  • blueberries 75g
  • rolled oats for sprinkling

Method

  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Whizz the dried apricots with 4 tbsp boiling water in a small blender, to a purée.

  • Step 2

    Mix the flour and ground almonds in a large bowl. Stir in the baking powder, eggs, yogurt, almond butter, bananas and the apricot purée. Mix, then fold in the blueberries.

  • Step 3

    Line 1 or 2 muffin trays with 10 paper cases and divide the mixture between them. Sprinkle over the oats and bake for 25 minutes, or until they are golden, risen and cooked through.

  • Step 4

    Leave to cool for a few minutes in the tin, then cool completely on a rack. Wrap the muffins individually in foil and freeze for up to 3 months.

  • Step 5

    To eat, leave the muffins out overnight to thaw (open the foil to stop the muffins from turning soggy), or, to eat from frozen, heat the oven to 200C/fan 190C/gas 6 and bake the muffins in the foil for 20-23 minutes until warmed through.
