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!

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!

Ingredients:


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!).
