Was doing my blog rounds and was captivated by Rachel’s latest post on Thamjiak.blogspot.com. “Whole Wheat Banana Chocolate Muffins”. Absolutely a wonderful idea for a healthy breakfast. Well, I guess Moms too need a good healthy reason to wake up early in the morning! What better way then to have these delicious looking muffins waiting eagerly to be eaten.

Checked my larder and ‘what have we got?’ 3 boxes of Luxury Swiss Muesli waiting to expire. Any other better way to recycle? For the original recipe kindly refer to Rachel’s blog. As for this recipe, I made do with what I had in hand which was a small tub of sour cream so instead of low fat yoghurt, I replaced with 210 gm of sour cream. I omitted the unsweetened shredded coconut and replaced raisins with sultanas. The topping was my dear almost expiring Luxury Swiss Muesli. Bake at 170 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes. Cover with a foil after the 1st 5 minutes because my muffins were much smaller in size.

They turned out well, just like how Rachel described them slightly chocolatey, good thick texture, occasional encounter on soft sultanas and crunch on the nuts. Wonderfully said!

Word of caution : Not for Gobblers! Eat slowly to enjoy the nuts and other interesting stuff inside.

    hi rachel,

    just wondering whether you doubled the recipe from thamjiak’s site?
    if u did, what did you use for 1.5/4? especially for the sugar, oh yes and also the coconut.
    i can’t seem to figure out what 1.5/4 is…

    Hi rayhana, I followed rachel’s recipe and put in whatever I had in hand at that time. I guess it’s a little of this and that recipe. As for sugar, I added 100 gm only and replaced the shredded coconut with raisins.
