Ingredients

Plain wholemeal flour

1½ cup(s), (225g)

Caster sugar

¼ cup(s), (55g)

Baking powder

3 tsp

Slow-cooker strawberry steel-cut oats (WW recipe)

1 cup(s), (345g)

Buttermilk

1 cup(s), (250ml)

Almond extract

¾ tsp

Egg(s)

1 medium, lightly beaten

Flaked almonds

¼ cup(s), or sliced, (20g)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 12-hole ⅓ cup (80 ml) capacity muffin tray with paper cases. Or place 12 silicone muffin moulds on a baking tray.
  2. Gently whisk flour, sugar and baking powder in a large bowl. Whisk strawberry oats, buttermilk, almond extract and egg in a medium bowl. Add oat mixture to flour mixture and stir until just combined. Divide the batter evenly among moulds. Sprinkle with almonds.
