These muffins, while they taste like a totally decadent dessert, are high in fibre, high in vitamins and taste so good. They are a bit higher in carbohydrates and fat, so enjoy as a treat. Really great for kids too.
- 60ml (1/4) cup extra virgin, cold pressed olive oil
- 3 large organic eggs
- 140g grated organic apples
- 125ml (1/2 cup) milk (coconut, rice, almond, soy, cow's or other milk)
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 160g fresh berries (raspberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, mulberries, loganberries or a combination)
- 45g (1/4 cup) organic polenta (cornmeal)
- 1 cup organic spelt flour
- 2/3 cup organic rye flour (use rice, buckwheat, or amaranth for a gluten-free variation)
- 3 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 Tspn ground cinnamon
- Use the olive oil to lightly grease the muffin tins.
- Line the base with baking paper if they are not non-stick.
- Whisk eggs and then add the grated apples, milk, honey and the remaining olive oil until the mixture is well combined.
- Stir in most of the berries, then the polenta and mix well.
- Sift the rye and spelt flours, bicarbonate of soda and ground cinnamon on top of the mixture.
- Using a large metal spoon, fold the mixture until all ingredients are combined (folding means to stir through slowly as if folding the ingredients through).
- Spoon mixture into muffin pans and top with the remaining berries.
- Bake in a medium over (180°C) for about 20 minutes, or until slightly browned on top. To test if they are cooked, insert a metal skewer gently into a muffin and if it comes out clean, the muffins are cooked.
- Remove muffin pans from oven and let stand for about 3-4 minutes before removing the muffins from the pans.
- Put muffins onto a wire rack to cool.
- Muffins can be served warm or cooled to room temperature.
- Muffins can be served as they are or with a dollop of organic plain yoghurt.
Use whatever berries are in season, or a mixture if you prefer.Advertisement
