Healthy, Low Fat, Low sugar Cranberry Muffins (GF/WF)

You know when you look in the fridge and see something staring at you saying “Use me up quick”? Yes my fridge talks to me 😉 Well I’ve had a punnet of cranberries staring at me for a little while and suddenly I knew I had to use them or lose them. Hubby often does the fruit and veg shopping which is fabulous but means I am never too sure what I will get. Last week he picked up fresh cranberries. Very seasonal but seeing as we didn’t need cranberry sauce what  was I going to do with them?

Cake was the answer. Sometimes in life cake is needed. These beauties worked so well they surprised me, I’m now going to have to adapt the recipe for other fruit so I can make them again.

Healthy, Gluten Free, Wheat Free Banana, Yoghurt Muffins.

I’ll admit it, we bake with bananas a lot. They help reduce the amount of fat and sugar needed in baking and we often end up with a few over-ripe ones. Now no-one in our house eats over-ripe bananas, baking with them makes sure they aren’t wasted. If I don’t have time to bake then they get thrown in the freezer and I get them out for baking with another day.

Today was a baking day. At 34 weeks pregnant I’m not as up for running around the park as I was, Daddy was at work so myself and the toddler agreed to have a crafting and baking day. As my small girl gets older she gets more vocal, so when I suggested banana cake I was told “No mummy, I want baby cakes”. Ok, muffins it is.

So here are our banana, yoghurt muffins. The banana cuts down the need for too much margarine, the dates reduce the added sugar and the yoghurt keeps them moist, so all in all a healthy version of cake. Use gluten free or normal self raising flour if you fancy.

Carrot Oatmeal Muffins. Gluten Free, great for little ones.

I’ve been waking up super early…5.30am, for no special reason. It’s one the one hand annoying as I’d like to get a bit more sleep, but I also relish the peace and quiet with the rest of the household still snoozing. So what do you do with a bit or early morning time on your hands? Get inspired by recipes and do some cooking of course!

I had to wait until my toddler woke to make these as I knew she’d love helping – she was super proud of herself for making cakes with carrots in. She grated the carrots (with help), did a lot of mivixing, measured out the sultant, baking powder and cinnamon, then dolloped it into the cases. I recion she will be on Masterchef soon 😉

Here is our recipe – it has some sugar in, but if you wanted to make it sugarfree try adding homemade applesauce (stewed apples pureed down).
