I made these muffins a while ago and they prove once again that a good muffin – like these – are a no brainer when it comes to little boys and their lunchboxes.
Tom of course ate three off the bat and by the next day, they were all gone; only two making it to school.
No doubt there is a revolution in muffin technology I am missing out on because they are pretty simple.
Keep it to the basics however and you’ll have a hit on your hands.
1 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1 cup self raising flour
3 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp bicarb soda
3 apples, peeled and grated
¼ cup honey (or brown sugar)
2 tbs maple syrup
⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
Extra apple slices to top
- Preheat oven to 180c and grease a 12-hole muffin tin.
- Sift flours, cinnamon and bicarb soda into a bowl. Stir in the grated apple, banana and honey.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the oil, eggs, maple syrup and vanilla essence. Add into the flour mixture and mix until combined.
- Spoon into the muffin pan, top with apple slices and bake for 20 – 25 minutes.
