Granola Mini Muffins with Spoon Cereals Recipe

I must admit I haven’t been baking much lately. I recently got a place for Oxford half marathon so I’ve started training. This means I’m watching what I eat a bit more, but I must admit I still find it hard to avoid a mid-morning snack. To help with my snacking I’ve started baking Mini Muffins and have them as a daily snack throughout the week.

Recipe Notes

Keep in an air tight box and they’ll keep for 5 days (perfect for mid-week snacks!)

These were wonderfully simple to make and need barely any mixing. You can make them in half an hour and have a batch for the week ahead. The next thing I want to try is adding some fruit into the mix, like sultanas or fresh cherries. I’ll keep experimenting with the recipe and update you when I’ve got that working!
