Apple and Walnut Muffins

I have a bit of a soft spot for muffins. They can be one of easiest homemade snacks, which come in a perfect portion - for us mums who are often eating on the run, needing breastfeeding snacks or have little mouths to feed, muffins can be genius! muffins With some simple switches I have created a healthier, yet still tasty version (toddler approved) of a traditional Edmonds fruit muffin recipe: Like a lot of my recipes this is a one bowl wonder, freezes well and can be easily adapted to suit your preference!


1 Egg

1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil*

2 tbs of low GI sugar*

1 cup of milk

2 cups of wholemeal flour*

4 tsp of baking powder

2 tsp of cinnamon*

1 cup of chopped apple (skin on)

1 x 70g bag of walnut pieces*

*Indicates where I have made some switches - reducing the sugar right down, changing the flour and oil, increasing the cinnamon and adding the walnuts. Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 180°C and grease 12-hole muffin tin (or mini-muffin tin). 2. In a medium sized bowl, mix the egg with a folk. 3. Add everything else and gently fold together. 4. Bake for approximately 15mins until golden on top. Enjoy while warm straight from the oven (or these freeze really well!). 2015-08-24 19.11.18 xxx The New Mum's Nutritionist
