Coles Easy Strawberry and Granola Muffins

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup (150g) self-raising flour

  • 1 cup (160g) self-raising wholemeal flour

  • 1 cup (130g) toasted muesli or granola

  • 3/4 cup (165g) brown sugar

  • 1 Coles Australian Free Range Egg

  • 1 cup (250ml) buttermilk

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) canola or vegetable oil

  • 1 cup (130g) finely chopped strawberries

STRAWBERRY CREAM CHEESE ICING

  • 50g strawberries, coarsely chopped

  • 1 tablespoon caster sugar

  • 125g cream cheese, softened

  • 60g butter, softened

 

METHOD

Step 1: Preheat oven to 180C. Line twelve ⅓-cup (80ml) muffin pan holes with paper cases.

Step 2: Place combined flour, muesli or granola and sugar in a bowl. Stir to combine. Whisk egg, buttermilk and oil in a jug. Add to the flour mixture with the strawberry and gently stir until just combined (don’t overmix). Spoon evenly among the paper cases.

Step 3: Bake for 20-25 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centres comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 mins to cool slightly before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4: Meanwhile, to make the strawberry cream cheese icing, combine the strawberry and sugar in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-7 mins or until the strawberry softens and mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat. Use a fork to mash until smooth. Set aside to cool.

Step 5: Use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese and butter in a bowl until pale and creamy. Gradually add icing sugar, in batches, beating well after each addition. Add strawberry mixture. Beat to combine. Spread evenly over muffins.
