I make a lot of muffins. They are such easy snacks and everyone in our house devours them. I do try and keep them reasonably healthy, although we are definitely not a sugar free household, I have a super sweet tooth 🙂
Today’s recipe for Apple Maple Muffins comes from the Muffin Bible, a really cute book by Penguin Australia that my brother gave me when we bought our house 9 years ago. I use it all the time – and have now been starting to convert the recipes to Bellini/Thermie versions (so stay tuned for more muffiny goodness).
- 1 apple
- 75g butter
- 80g maple syrup (or ¼ cup)
- 2 egg whites
- 125g/ml milk
- 80g oats
- 50g sugar
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 200g SR flour
- Preheat oven to 200⁰C.
- Cut apple into quarters and place in jug. Chop for 7 sec, speed 5.
- Set aside.
- Cut butter into chunks and place in jug, melt for 2 min 30 sec at 60⁰C, speed 3.
- Separate the eggs and add whites to butter in jug with milk and maple syrup.
- Mix for 8 sec, speed 4.
- Add all the dry ingredients; oats, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon and flour. Mix for 8 sec, speed 3.
- Mix in the apple by hand using a spatula.
- Place into muffin trays and bake for 20-25 minutes at 200⁰C.
- Let stand for a few minutes and then remove from pans to cool on a rack.
- You can add a glaze to drizzle over the muffins by mixing ¼ cup icing sugar with ½ tbsp of maple syrup.
- These are delicious and great for the kids as the oats make them extra filling.
