There is no question that writing a “sweet” blog plays havoc with the waistline so, in an attempt to be more virtuous, this week I decided to make low fat muffins.
I have some good news and some bad news in the muffin making escapade. The good news is that I started off with good intentions, the bad news is I finished with a flurry of golden syrup, brown sugar and chocolate… but wait there’s more good news: these muffins are seriously good! I did make one concession to health and added rolled oats, that makes them healthy right?
Although these muffins are tasty I did find them very hearty and a little goes a long way, you may even want to share them with a loved one…..or not :).
