Home made vs shop bought treats what is the difference? This morning my little side kick and i made this scrumptious apple and blueberry muffins for morning tea. Out of curiosity I popped the recipe into my nutrition analysis software and compared it to something similar from the shops – Woolworths blueberry muffins. So this is how it came out (comparing 100g of each food) the home made version had about 1/3 less calories, about 1/3 less fat, less than 1/2 the amount of sugar, and whilst woolies did not advertise the fibre – from the ingredients mine has much more fibre, and of course the shop product had many more additives and preservatives. So it really pays to bake from home. 👩🍳 👨🍳
Ok for the recipe
– 1.5 cups of self raising flour,
1 cup rolled oats,
0.5 cup of sugar,
3 tablespoons bran,
2 teaspoons of cinnamon,
1.5 cups milk,
2 apples finely diced (skin on),
1 cup of frozen blueberries,
0.5 cup of canola oil.
Mix together in a large bowl and put into patty cake or muffin papers in a muffin tray, and bake in a moderate oven until nice and golden brown in the top:) 👩🍳 👨🍳 happy baking!
