150 g oatmeal (rolled oats)
60 ml sunflower oil
120 ml milk
1 teaspoon baking powder
80 g fresh figs
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Handful of pecan nuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
These delectable muffins are made without sugar, wheat flour or butter. Instead, they contain healthy ingredients like oatmeal flour, luscious fresh figs and fresh ginger. A wholesome version of the traditional muffin: a wonderful snack, or eat them for breakfast or lunch.
Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C.
Grind the oatmeal into flour in a food processor. Add the salt and cinnamon to the oatmeal flour. Add the egg and sunflower oil and beat with a whisk until the batter is smooth. Add the milk a little at a time and stir after each addition.
Mix the baking powder into the batter. Cut the figs into small pieces, coarsely chop the pecan nuts and fold these ingredients with the ginger into the batter.
Place 8 paper muffin cups into a muffin tin, distribute the batter among them, and bake the oatmeal muffins for about 30-35 minutes. Cool the muffins on a cooling rack.
