  • 2 large eggs
  • 150ml natural low-fat yoghurt
  • 50ml rapeseed oil
  • 100g apple sauce or pureed apples
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 4 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g wholemeal flour
  • 50g rolled oats, plus extra for sprinkling
  • 1 ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 100g blueberry
  • 2 tbsp mixed seed (recommend pumpkin, sunflower or flaxseed)


  • Preheat the oven to 180⁰C, 160⁰C fan, gas mark 4. Using the Tower 12 Cup Muffin Tray, line with 12 large muffin cases
  • Mix together the eggs, yoghurt, oil, apple sauce, banana, honey and vanilla
  • Add the remaining ingredients except the seeds into a large bowl with a pinch of salt, then mix to combine
  • Add the wet ingredients with the dry and briefly mix until a smooth batter is created – Overmixing will make the muffins heavy
  • Divide the batter between the 12 cases and sprinkle with the extra oats and seeds
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden. To test, insert a skewer into the centre and remove. If skewer comes out clean, then your muffins are done, if the skewer is coated in mixture, put back into the oven for a little while longer
  • Remove from the oven and transfer onto a wire rack, leave to cool
  • Store in a sealed container for up to 3 days
