Chocolate or Fruit Muffins

Chocolate Muffins

(Recipe and image Kalila’s own)


Ingredients: 50g butter, 50g caster sugar (can be switched for desiccated coconut for a sugar-free option), 1 egg, 300ml milk, 50g oatbran, 50g dark chocolate (70% cacao), 100g buckwheat flour, 1tbsp of baking powder (c. 15ml), pinch of salt

Fruit Muffins

As above but switch the chocolate for 50g of fresh blueberries, raspberries or cranberries.


  1. Start by soaking the bran in the milk for circa 10 minutes or until the milk has been soaked up.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy and then beat in the egg and the bran and milk mixture.
  3. Add in the chocolate in roughly broken chunks.
  4. With a metal spoon gently stir in the flour, salt and baking powder.
  5. If making fruit muffins, add in the fruit at this stage and gently stir into the mixture.
  6. Pour or spoon the mixture into 6 muffin cases or alternately I would advise using a silicon muffin tray as completely non stick.
  7. Bake in the centre of a preheated oven at 200C for c. 25 mins. Use a cocktail stick to check if fully cooked in the centre. If it comes out clean then your muffins are ready to eat.
  8. Sprinkle with a little icing sugar and serve!
