I like muffins. It is fail-proof, mess-free kinda food that I can whip up within minutes.
1. 5 cups oats
1.5 cups self-raising flour (or normal flour + 1 tsp of baking powder)
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda (or 2 teaspoon of baking powder)
0.5 teaspoon salt
0.5 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup corn (or olive) oil
2 large bananas, mashed
half a can of pineapple, chopped (you can omit or substitute with other type of fruits)
Mix everything. The texture should not be too hard nor too watery. Adjust accordingly. If too watery, add more oats. If too hard, add more milk.
Bake in muffin trays, cupcakes or any type of small casings.
Takes about 15 mins in a 220 deg. celcius oven.
Muffin does not keep well because it will become ‘dry’ when left overnight as it uses very little oil. But it is certainly much healthier than cakes as it uses only a quarter quantity of oil compare to cakes which use butter.
I made 12 muffins with the large paper casings and they disappeared within minutes!
