Deliciously, slightly crunchy scone-like muffins with juicy dried fruit and good for you wholemeal flour. So comforting when eaten warm with Greek yoghurt or cream, a delectable full-filling snack by itself. These are not light and fluffy, but warming, comforting and satisfying. These muffins are about 225 calories each, depending on the type of oil used and any extra toppings.
Carotino oil is a healthier oil used in baking/cooking and it gives these muffins a deep golden colour. Vegetable oil can also be used, but you should use 75ml oil (carotino requires less than standard oil).
Instead of 200g self-raising wholemeal flour you can use 200g wholemeal plain flour with 2 teaspoons baking powder. Use half plain and half wholemeal if you want a slightly less dense muffin.
For the toppings you can try flaked almonds, brown sugar, raisins etc.
