No Junk Apple, cinnamon and raisin muffins

20140505-093634.jpg

Picnic time is here again, and in an effort to limit the amount of sugar and hidden nasties in Elliot’s diet, I came across Organix’s recent No Junk campaign (you can read more about that here)

Organix had a fab recipe for these really simple muffins, which Elliot and I made yesterday to take along to a picnic. They contain no sugar, just maple syrup and the naturally occurring sugar in the fruit. To be honest they tasted a little bland to an adult’s palate but the kids absolutely loved them (and knowing they weren’t as bad as a shop bought cake made the mummies and daddies happy too!)

You can substitute the raisins and apples for other fruit and spices if you like.

The mix made 12 muffins.

Ingredients
3 eggs
3 tbsps maple syrup
2 tsps cinnamon
120mls olive oil
2 apples
150g self-raising flour
Raisins (couple of handfuls, to taste)

Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-assisted), gas mark 6.

Next, whisk the eggs with the maple syrup, cinnamon and olive oil. Grate the apples and stir into the egg mixture. Then add the flour and mix.

I then added a couple of handfuls of raisins before dividing the mixture into greaseproof muffin tins, and bake for approximately 20 minutes, until golden and cooked in the centre.

Enjoy!
