About this recipe: There's nothing better than a simple, wholesome muffin. These are lightly sweetened and packed full of oats. For an even healthier muffin, try substituting some of the plain flour for wholemeal flour.

  • 80g porridge oats
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 125g plain flour
  • 4 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Extra time:15min soaking  ›  Ready in:55min

Good recipe. Could be better with a little more sugar. I'll try it next time. Nice texture. - 24 Jan 2011


Nice, easy and tasty. I love how fluffy they are inside. I added a table spoon of golden syrup to add a bit more sweetness. Lovely recipe. - 23 May 2013


I added a tbsp honey because I have a sweet tooth, used self raising flour and got rid of the baking powder (as I can taste it quite strongly). That said, they were lovely, especially warm from the oven. I'd add a little more sugar for my tastes, but great recipe. - 18 Mar 2014
