Im 17 and ive been working out for over 6 months now but is there any other recipe that is like this but lower in fat?


I'm sure these are delicious but 9g of fat for breakfast seems like a lot to me.


I've just put these in the oven and they smell delicious! I used apple instead of blueberries and ginger, cinnamon & cloves instead of mixed spice. Will let you know how they get on! x


i love this recipe i have the muffins on a saturday with my 3 children and they now love breakfast thankyou for the brilliant idea
