Made these with gluten free flour as I can't eat wheat, they were beautiful. Nice and light not to sweet, I also put in walnuts yum. My whole family loved them.


How annoying is it to read a recipe that states "...1/2 a cup of quick cooking oats". I have no idea what quick cooking oats are. Is there a particular brand or type of oat? Any chance of being helpful here Chelsea?
CHELSEA: Quick cooking oats can be found in virtually all supermarkets around NZ. They are usually labelled 'quick oats', and available under several different brands. Rolled oats would also be a suitable replacement.

These muffins were gorgeous!!! Made them for my whole whanau it was absolutely amazing. Yummy lunchbox snack for the kids.
