Sunday Baking: Skinny Oaty Peach Breakfast Muffins

21 October 2018


Before you all assume that this has turned into a food blog {I wish I was that good of a cook!}, I do have some other seasonal posts planned...but for now I'm obsessed with baking and it's definitely shining through on this blog. Today's creation was this batch of skinny oaty peach muffins, which I think would be perfect for a sweet breakfast - I know I'll definitely be grabbing one as I head out of the door this week. 

Once again, they're super easy to make, and as they are 'skinny' muffins it's best to use silicone muffin cases if you have them, as the mixture does tend to stick to the paper. 



Ingredients: 

🍑 1 tin canned peaches {fresh are better but they are sadly out of season right now!} 
🍑 100g plain flour
🍑 100g plain porridge oats 
🍑 100g 0% fat greek yoghurt 
🍑 1 tbsp baking powder
🍑 1tbsp bicarbonate soda 
🍑 1tsp ground nutmeg 
🍑 2 large eggs 



Method: 

1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. 
2. Add your flour, oats, yoghurt, baking powder, bicarbonate soda, ground nutmeg and eggs into a bowl and whisk until combined. 
3. Drain the juice from the peaches and cut into small cubes. 
4. Add in the peaches to the mixture and slowly mix. 
5. Spoon into 12 muffin cases and sprinkle a few plain oats onto the top of the mixture. 
6. Pop in the oven for 30 mins, until golden brown. 

Happy Baking!

Sunday Baking: Skinny Apple, Cinnamon & Walnut Loaf Cake

14 October 2018


Following on from last Sunday's baking post, today I wanted to share my take on my Mum's Dorset Apple Cake, as this low sugar option is a little more 'diet friendly' or perfect for those looking to reduce their sugar intake like myself. The great thing about this loaf cake is that it's super easy to make {even a novice like myself can make it!} and if you're a countryside girl like I once was, I know you'll have an abundance of apples that you need to use up at this time of year!

Sunday Baking: Skinny Blueberry Muffins

7 October 2018


This year I've been making a conscious effort to eat better in an attempt to lose weight, and with that comes eating much less sugar. Before anyone asks or comments, I chose to lose weight for health {recommended by my doctor} and personal reasons {I just didn't feel like myself anymore}, but I don't think that anyone should try to lose weight unless they want to lose it either for themselves or for health reasons - this post isn't aimed to make you think you need to diet!

However, I have the biggest sweet tooth in the world, and really struggled at the beginning to give up the sweet treats I'd become so accustomed to. To get round the 'eating less sugar but being addicted to the taste' dilemma I took to the kitchen and started trying out some 'skinny bakes' that I'd found online. The recipes I found were hit and miss, with a few working well {low sugar banana bread, I'm looking at you} and a few being complete disasters...but hey, you can't win them all!


Autumn Favourites

1 October 2018


When it comes to the seasons, Autumn is by far my favourite. It's not so cold that you can't feel your fingers, and we're not yet in the months of 'it's getting dark at 4pm', but it's also not so hot you can't move...also, autumn fashion - need I say more? So today I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite bits and pieces I've been buying for autumn, and some I've been using for years
