Mixed Berry, Agave Syrup & Oat Muffins

Berry Muffins

Based on: this recipe… my changes below!

Berry Muffins


  • 1 ¾ cups self-raising flour
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cup low fat soy milk
  • 60g canola oil
  • ¼ cup dark agave syrup (I used Maretai brand)
  • 1 egg
  • 300g Creative Gourmet Frozen Mixed Berries (didn’t QUITE) use the full pack!


  1. Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C. Put paper cases into mini muffin tray. I ended up making 39 all up, but 36 would have been a good number if I’d put an even amount in each!
  2. Sift flour into a large bowl. Stir in oats, sugar and walnuts. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients.
  3. In a jug, whisk together milk, oil, syrup and egg. Add to dry ingredients, mixing lightly until just combined – there will still be a few pockets of flour, this gives the characteristic texture. Fold in berries.
  4. Spoon evenly into prepared pan until ¾ full.
  5. Bake for around minutes until golden and cooked when tested (I poked them with my finger and they sproinged back). Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container – I’m told these freeze well.

    Creative Gourmet frozen fruits rock, I also like the pancakes.

    This is probaly a really dumb question but did you thaw the berries before you added them?

      Put them in frozen… they keep they colour from running through everything that way!

    Eep! So pretty and colourful. Wanting wanting!! I have just a few more of my carrot orange muffins to go, then I think I’ll make something like this. Need something to help use up my rolled oats (I just can’t help prefering oatbran for my porridge). And dairy-free, wheee!
