Apple and Cinnamon Muffins!

Give me a muffin and I am your new best friend, make it healthy and we're literally going to be BFFs for life.

These muffins are wholemeal, sugar free and only use a tiny bit of fat. They're packed with flavour and are a perfect snack or dessert. You can make them gluten free by exchanging the wholemeal flour for rice flour. This recipe makes 12 so there will be plenty to share (or keep for yourself..)

You'll need:

1 ½ cups wholemeal plain flour, sifted
3 teaspoons baking of powder
1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of Stevia (I use Natvia)
2 eggs
60g light butter, softened to room temperature
⅔ cup of light milk (or soy milk)
2 cups of grated apple

Firsly, preheat the oven to 180˚c and prepare your muffin tin, I choose to spray it with a little extra light virgin olive oil, you can you liners if you prefer.

Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and stevia together and stir until combined.

Then in a separate bowl beat the eggs, milk and butter until combined.

Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and add the grated apple, then stir gently until just combined. The less you stir, the fluffier the muffins will be (fluffy is the goal).

Distribute the mixture evenly into your 12 pans and bake for about 15 minutes.

Hello amazing muffins!

Why are they good for me?

Apples are a good source of calcium and are wonderful at detoxing the body. They're also packing a whole lot of fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A to boost immunity.

Wholemeal flour is low in fat, a good source of protein, vitamins (particularly the B vitamins), thiamine and niacin. It has less calories than white flour.

Let me know if you try these out and what you think of them!
