Sunday Baking Project: The quickie muffins - sugar and dairy free - get CREATIVE!

Now these are terribly basic, but don't let the ingredients fool you - they are not by any means bland or boring.   I made these quickly BEFORE school shortly before the school holidays as I ran out of my pick and mix a little earlier than I expected.  They are truly so simple you'll be trying them and experimenting with your own variations!

Some variations I try instead of currants:

  • Frozen raspberries
  • Cut up pear or apple
  • Mashed banana
Alternatives to honey:
  • Golden syrup
  • Maple syrup

You can also make them with gluten free flour, sometimes I substitute a few tablespoons of bran or crushed wheat-bix for the flour.

So my friends, if you haven't had enough cooking for school lunches/snacks already after yesterday's 30 recipes I gave you - have a go at these!

(makes 20)
2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 cup honey
2 eggs
1/2 cup rice milk (use regular if no dairy allergies/intolerances)
1/4 cup currants

Preheat oven to 190 degrees c

Mix all in in a bowl with electric beaters/mixer mix until smooth (2-3 minutes tops)
Pour into cupcake/muffin papers or greased muffin pan about 3/4 full.

Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden on top and baked through.

Have a lovely Sunday!  Hop over to Facebook  to see my adventures at the Good Food and Wine Show yesterday!  I won something for you'll never guess knowing WHAT...!

I have a bunch of too-ripe bananas on my bench waiting to be used, so this is perfect timing :)

Question though - I don't think these muffins can be 'dairy free' with milk in them! Unless you use soy in its place, I suppose :D

Whoops! I knew I missed something late last night! I used rice milk, but you can use regular ;)

LOL! Or rice milk. Or even breast milk! (Not that we have any of that left in this place).

I'll be baking these this afternoon. Just cleaned out the freezer and have a few black bananas that could be used to fertilise the rose bushes - or make muffins - muffins win!
