These apple muffins are packed full of healthiness and goodness. I adapted these from the wheat germ banana muffins, and I think the are amazing. I have started having muffins for a great healthy breakfast on the go.
- 1 1/2 cups plain flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground Cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon All Spice
- 1/8 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
- 1 1/2 cups wheat germ
- 1 cups dark brown sugar
- 2 large Bramley/Cooking apples
- 1/2 cup milk
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup plain unsweetened yoghurt
- 1/3 cup of oil
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 400°F / 180°C / 150°C Fan assisted ovens (rather err on the side of slightly cooler, they burn easily). Line 12 muffin cups with muffin papers. You may want to spray non stick spray on the inside of the muffin papers to stop them sticking .
Chop one of the apples into small chunks. These will go straight into the mixture and need to be small enough to cook through in the muffins. Core and peel the other apple and blend it into a purée in a blender.
Sift the flour into medium bowl. Mix in wheat germ. Combine sugar, puréed apple, milk, eggs, yoghurt and vanilla extract in large bowl and whisk to blend. Mix in dry ingredients. Finally add the chunks of apples to the mixture and spoon into the muffin tins.
Bake muffins until tops are golden brown and tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 20-25 minutes.
