Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

Apple & Cinnamon Muffins

posted in: Recipes, Sweets, Uncategorised | 2

After finishing all my exams, I finally got to bake again. I know I wasn’t posting very often lately but I’ll try to make up for it now. I didn’t feel like going to the shop today to get some ingredients for something special (our fridge is so empty by now) so I came up with this simple and healthy (or healthier) recipe for muffins. Enjoy!


Makes: 5

Preparation: 15 minutes
Baking: 25 minutes


INGREDIENTS

100g wholemeal flour
50g quick oats
½ teaspoon cinnamon, ground
¼ teaspoon cardamom, ground
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
60ml grape seed oil
60ml milk
60ml maple syrup
50g walnuts, roughly chopped
½ apple, cut into thin wedges

Crumb
1 tablespoon wholemeal flour
1 tablespoon quick oats
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter

METHOD

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and line muffin tin with paper cases.
  • Place the flour, oats, cinnamon, cardamom and baking powder into a bowl and mix well.
  • Beat the egg until pale and fluffy and add to the dry ingredients. Add the oil, milk and maple syrup and stir until well combined. Set aside for 5 minutes to allow to absorb the liquid.
  • Meanwhile prepare the crumb. Place all the ingredients into a bowl and rub with your fingers to create fine crumbs and set aside.
  • Add the walnuts into the muffin batter and gently fold through.
  • Spoon the batter into the prepared cases and top with the apple slices and sprinkle with some crumb.
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of a muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool in the tin for 5 minutes then transfer onto a wire rack and cool completely.
