(This recipe will yield 12 medium sized muffins)
My eyes lit up few days ago when I discovered a punnet of frozen blackberries in the dark depths of my freezer, as I remembered I had been saving these for a rainy day of baking. With the recent weather in Canberra it was a perfect afternoon for getting into the kitchen and cooking up these healthy and scrumptious beauties. For a while I had been experimenting with a good muffin recipe and after a few trials, here it is!
These muffins are jammed packed with fibre and make for a tasty lunchbox addition or afternoon school snack.
