Mini Apple and Cinnamon Muffins

Mini Apple and Cinnamon muffins are great for an afternoon tea party! Kids love them too, and it’s a great way of getting them to eat more fruit!

Dry Ingredients

  • 1 cup SR flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch salt
  • 1 small green apple, peeled cored and finely diced

Wet Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tblsp virgin olive oil

Topping

  • 1/2 small green apple, thinly sliced
  • Cinnamon dusting sugar

Notes

  • After placing the mix into the cup cake maker, top each muffin with half a slice of apple and dust with the dusting sugar.
  • These need to cook for around 15 minutes, much longer than usual because of the fruit.
  • I clean my cupcake maker between every batch of these.   The mixture is very runny and sticks more than other mixes.
  • These are my husbands favorite.. I find myself cooking them on a regular basis!

  • 50g ground almonds (almond meal)
  • 125g chopped cherries (fresh or tinned, drained)

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 90g greek yogurt
  • 60g oil

Method

Blend the wet ingredients together in a blender.

Make according to the instructions on your cupcake maker, around 7 – 10 minutes.
