“To keep the body in good health is a duty – otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear.” – Gautama Buddha

Late Winter and the days are still cold and wet. A good opportunity to do some baking of a few wholesome, good old-fashioned muffins. Perfect for afternoon tea by the fire!


Ingredients (for 20-25 pieces)
1 cup boiling water
1 cup rolled oats
3/4 cup light vegetable oil
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
500 g plain yogurt
1 cup raisins (or sultanas)
1/2 cup mixed candied peel
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
2 and 1/2 cups plain flour
2 cups bran
2 teaspoons baking soda


Pour boiling water over the rolled oats, mix well and allow to cool.
Combine oil, sugar, eggs and yoghurt. Stir in the dried fruit. Add to the oat mixture .
Combine the dry ingredients. Thoroughly combine the wet and dry ingredients, mixing gently.
Spoon into muffin tins and sprinkle top with coarse brown sugar if desired.
Bake in a conventional oven for 20-25 minutes at 200°C.
