10 minutes

Cooking time

15 minutes



Makes 12 
3 tbsp Drink Me Spiced Chai 
2 tbsp boiling water 
125ml milk 
225g plain flour 
1 1/2 tsp baking powder 
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda 
Pinch of salt 
50g medium oatmeal 
50g light muscavado sugar 
50g butter, melted 
1 x 200g tub Greek style yoghurt 
1 large egg, beaten 
4 tbsp runny honey 
Little extra medium oatmeal for dusting

  1. Preheat the oven to 200c/400f/gas mark 6. Place the Spiced Chai in a jug, add the boiling water and stir until dissolved and smooth.
  2. Top up the mixture with the milk and set aside. 
  3. In a large bowl sift together the plain flour with the baking powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Stir in the oatmeal and sugar and make a well in the centre.
  4. In a jug mix together the melted butter, yogurt, beaten eggs and honey, then stir in the Spiced Chai mixture and pour into the dry ingredients.
  5. Stir until just mixed together. If it looks a little lumpy this is fine, as over mixing will result in a rubbery muffins.
  6. Divide the mixture between a 12 hole deep muffin tin lined with muffin cases, then sprinkle each with a little extra oatmeal.
  7. Cook in a preheated oven for 15 - 18 minutes or until well risen, golden and firm to the touch.
  8. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes in their tin before removing and cooling on a wire rack.
