So it’s January, and 2016! I’m excited for this year, because in September I will be starting my PGCE, but also terrified, because before I start that PGCE I need to pass my current degree, and that involves writing 8000 words on the lyrics of the Reformation…! But January also tends to inspire people into eating a bit more healthily and doing more exercise, but while I am no help at all with the latter, I have come up with an amazing healthy muffin recipe, which is perfect for breakfast on the go.

These muffins are full of fibre from the wholemeal flour and oats, and are also free from refined sugar, so they are pretty good for you, and pretty yummy!
