Apple and Walnut 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!
1/4 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.
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!).
