  • 250
    self-raising flour
  • 7.50
    baking powder
  • 2.50
  • 250
    oat bran
  • 30
    fresh parsley, chopped
  • 15
    fresh basil, chopped
  • 0
    1 medium apple, peeled and finely grated
  • 30
    olive or canola oil
  • 125
    low-fat or fat-free milk
  • 250
    bolognaise mince
  • 10
    grated Parmesan cheese
  • 100
    low-fat Cheddar or mozzarella cheese, grated


1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius and lightly grease a baking sheet with a paper towel dipped in oil.
2. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a large bowl, then stir in the oat bran, herbs and grated apple.
3. Mix the oil and milk in a measuring jug.
4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and apple, and pour the milk and oil mixture into it.
5. Mix lightly with a knife to make a soft dough.
6. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured board and knead it gently, using your fingertips only.
7. Pat the dough out into a rectangle about 1 cm thick.
8. Spread the mince over the entire surface of the dough.
9. Starting at 1 long side of the rectangle, roll it up like a swiss roll to make a thick sausage.
10. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
11. Cut into 2 cm thick slices to make 16 little rounds. Place the rounds side by side (not too close to each other) on the baking sheet and sprinkle them evenly with the cheese.
12. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. Be very careful not to bake the pinwheels too long as they dry out quickly.
13. Serve hot or cold. They are delicious on their own.
