Stupidly easy Nestum muffins


The all-time favourite

Is anyone familiar with Nestum? This is what we usually have for breakfast, especially for those that doesn’t enjoy oats. I love baking especially spontaneous one. I have some leftover buttermilk and was up to baking AGAIN. I was searching for recipe last night on the Internet. After some consideration, I attempted this very simple ‘stupidly-easy Nestum muffins’.

Sometimes we wish to spoil ourselves with sweet treats but at the same time, we wanted to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Therefore this recipe from ‘Happy Flour’ yields 7 muffins which is a great amount for a family of 7 like me.


– 60g Butter

– 70g sugar

– 1 egg

– 130g or 130ml Buttermilk

– 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

– 120g self-raising flour

– 25g chopped almond (I love adding extra nuts)

– 40g Nestum (another 10g to sprinkle on top)

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Line muffin tins with paper cups and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter over low heat and remove from stove (My method: pop it into the microwave for 45 seconds)
  4. Stir in the sugar until dissolved and cool slightly.
  5. Stir in buttermilk, egg and vanilla essence into the  butter/sugar batter. 
  6. Mix flour, almond and Nestum together in bowl. 
  7. Pour the flour mixture slowly into the batter and mix until just combined. 
  8. Spoon the batter into the lined muffins tin and sprinkle some Nestum on top. 
  9. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  10. Remove the muffins from oven and cool on a wire rack.

Moist on the inside, crunchy on the outside

I am glad that my slight modification on the recipe has led to a great success.  The original recipe uses milk instead of buttermilk and also requires to add a pinch of salt. I have added more Nestum and almonds too. I hope everyone could try out this recipe and I can guarantee that it will be very delicious as what you will expect.
