These muffins are really moist and lovely. They have the perfect level of sweetness and luscious chunks of apple.

These low fat Apple and Cinnamon Muffins have only 3g of fat per 100g, but are as good, if not better, that regular muffins.

Ingredients

  • 2 Granny Smith Apples, peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup Castor Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup natural low fat yoghurt
  • 2 heaped tblsp Extra Light Spread (we used Devondale)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla Essence or vanilla paste
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • Sprinkle ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp brown sugar

Method

  1.  Peel, Core and Dice the apple into large chunks.   Place in a saucepan with water and cinnamon and simmer for approx 10 mins until softened but not mush.  Take off heat and set aside to cool down.
  2. Preheat oven to 180C and layout 8 muffin patties inside a muffin tin.
  3. In a mixer beat margarine and caster sugar for 5 mins. Add vanilla and beat a further minute.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time on slowest speed. Don't worry if looks like it is curdled, its ok. Once eggs incorporated, add the yoghurt.
  5. In a bowl sift the flour, baking powder. Add flour to batter 1/3 at a time either by hand with a wooden spoon or mixture on lowest speed until well combined. 
  6. Now with a wooden spoon carefully add the apple mixture, folding into the batter carefully as you don't want to break up the apples.
  7. Place mixture into patty pans and bake for 20-25 mins depending on oven, check with skewer in the middle that nothing comes out when pierced.
