Dorset Muesli Muffins

Posted on

I have great friends.  When I tweeted that I had 7 different Dorset Cereals to sample, they were happy to help me out.

So far I have only been eating it for breakfast, though I have plans to do some baking!  My friend Amy has been keeping a bag of the Super Cranberry, Cherry and Almond Muesli cereal in her purse and snacking on it and loving it.  Besides the fruit in the title, this muesli aslo contains raisins and sultanas, sunflower seeds, flame raisins and toasted cereals.   It is a good source of fibre, contains 28g of whole grains per 60g serving, has no added preservatives, is UK Vegetarian Society approved, suitable for vegans and is Kosher.*

My other friend Katy, also decided to bake using the same muesli, and below is what she made.

Banana-Coconut Muffins (adapted) with Super Cranberry, Cherry and Almond Muesli

She found the recipe here:

The only problems were the recipe called for cooking too long (she took them out 20 mins early and they were a bit over cooked) and the dried fruit plumped up in the oven and rolled off the muffins when she took them out!  Maybe it would be better to mix the granola in, instead of on top.

This made 1 dozen muffins and 1 loaf.

I was sent 7 boxes of Dorset muesli cereals to sample and blog about.  All opinions are my own.
