Amanda Holden Alpen

By now you may have seen Amanda Holden's new advert with Alpen, encouraging the nation to try something new in the morning as part of Alpen's '21 Ways To Start Your Day' campaign
To celebrate everything breakfast related, a few weeks ago I joined Amanda and the Alpen team to compete in the Great Blogger Breakfast Off.
Facing three other bloggers, I was challenged to create a new breakfast treat using Alpen. I decided upon Morning Muesli Muffins, which went down well - however I won't reveal where I come in the competition until the video is release (eeek!).

In the morning I'm always too blurry eyed to measure exact measurements, however if you'd like to recreate my recipe (for 12 muffins) you'll need:
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1tsp baking powder
  • A good drizzle of honey
  • 100g of your favourite Alpen
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g natural yogurt
  • 5tbspn sunflower or vegetable oil
Method:
  • Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F/Fan 180°C/Gas Mark 6.
  • Line a muffin tray with 12 cases.
  • Sift the flour, Alpen and baking powder into a large bowl.
  • In another bowl combine all the remaining ingredients until well combined.
  • Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until just combined.
  • Divide the mixture between the muffin cases.
  • Bake for 20 mins or until golden and well risen.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool fully.
  • Decorate with a spoonful of natural yogurt and a sprinkle of Alpen.
