Fig{de}licious Muffins

This morning I opened the kitchen cupboard and there it was, Pick n Pay Finest Fig Jam! For an early bird I thought well, maybe it might not be such a good idea to start the day with something sweet, but then I thought... wait a minute, let's make another peek-a-boo recipe, a 'surprise' ingredient and that's when recipe popped into my head...Fig Health Muffins. *{See recipe and Easy-to-find Shopping list below}

With winter peeping around every corner, I wanted to have a healthy breakfast to boost my immune system and get some extra fibre into my everyday diet. But...it wouldn't be possible for me to leave out 'something sweet'. So, I came up with a healthy alternative for a grab-and-go breakfast. This peek-a-boo fig jam muffin is perfect. It already has the jam inside the health muffin - perfect for when you are in a rush, having a picnic or surprising your tea-time guests!

100g Stork Bake
250 ml milk
2 eggs
½ cup castor sugar
2 ½ cups Nutty Wheat High Bran Wheat Flour
10ml baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
100g ground almonds
100g desiccated coconut
12 tsp Pick n Pay fig jam / jam of choice
Mix milk, eggs, melted stork bake and castor sugar together.
Add flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon into the milk mixture.
Add almonds and coconut. Mix well.
Spoon mixture into a muffin tin to fill half of the muffin hole, place one spoon of a chunky fig jam in the centre of the mixture and cover the fig jam with more mixture. Bake for 20-25 minutes in a preheated oven at 200*C.
Serving suggestion: Tastes lovely and enhances the cinnamon flavour when served with Chai Tea / Latté.
