Milo muffins
NOM NOM: Who could refuse a Milo muffin for morning or afternoon tea?

There aren’t many children who would refuse a Milo muffin for morning or afternoon tea – or even in their lunchbox.

This is an extremely simple recipe using readily available pantry ingredients – great for a last minute treat or lunchbox stash.


1 & a 1/2 cups self raising flour
2/3 cup milo
1 egg
2/3 cup milk
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
60g butter, softened


Preheat oven to 190 degrees C.

In a mixer or a bowl add all ingredients, beat until smooth.

Pour into muffin or cupcake papers until 3/4 full.

Bake for 25-30 minutes.

You may choose to make these as a quick lunchbox treat or a dessert - great warm with ice cream and chocolate sauce.
