I had a delivery of gorgeous Greenstar apples today and they looked too good not to bake with so I decided to make a batch of apple muffins. Muffins are the perfect lunchbox or after school snack and easy for adding in extra fruit!
This recipe uses the apples and a little maple syrup for sweetness as well as some juicy sultanas. I usually make mini muffins as I find my Little Miss will happily eat one or two and be done. This recipe actually makes enough for 24 mini muffins and 6 larger muffins but you could make more of the larger ones depending on your preference.
Sultana & apple muffins
2 cups self raising flour (wholemeal self raising flour if you prefer)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup milk
2 green apples, peeled and grated
1 green apple, peeled and chopped into small pieces
1/4 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup oil
1/3 cup sultanas
Preheat the oven to 180C. Prepare your muffin tins with liners.
Add the flour and cinnamon into a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl or jug combine the milk, egg, peeled apples, maple syrup and oil. Make a well in the centre of the flour and stir gently to combine.
Add the chopped apple and sultanas into the mixture and again stir gently until just combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared muffin tins and bake for 12 minutes for mini muffins and 15 minutes for larger muffins. Serve as is or sprinkled with a little cinnamon sugar or icing sugar if you are feeling generous!
