We have another fabulous guest blogger joining us this week for ‘Kids Tea Tuesdays’! So it’s over to Rebecca from Rock and Roses Mama for something sweet!
As part of Sonia’s incredible series ‘Kids Tea Tuesdays’, I have been asked to submit a healthy dinner recipe; My Rosy Mama Recipes has gone down a sweet storm so I thought, what better than to offer you all with a healthy dessert alternative for family dinner times! The beauty of it is that it will feel like you are eating a sumptuous and sinful dessert while being an easy and healthy doppleganger! I give you… Apple and Cinnamon Muffins.
What makes these muffins healthy you say? Well The sugar and butter content is significantly reduced in comparison to alternative recipes without a compromise on taste!
Note: These muffins are a standard recipe that can be used in combination with any fruit you desire! Just replace the apple and cinnamon with whichever fruit you fancy!
- 225g Plain Flour
- 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
- A pinch of Salt
- 100g Caster Sugar + Extra for topping
- 1 tsp Cinnamon + Extra for dusting
- 60g Butter (For an even healthier alternative use an Olive Spread)
- 225ml Low Fat Milk
- 110g Chopped Apples (Peeled and Cored)
Method: (Makes 8 large muffins/12 small muffins):
- Preheat your oven to 200C/Gas Mark 7
- Pop your muffin cases into a Muffin Tin and pop to one side ready.
- Sift all of the dry ingredients into a medium sized bowl and pop to one side.
- In a large bowl cream together the Sugar and Butter.
- Measure out your Milk and pour a little into your creamed Sugar/Butter mixture alternatively with the mixture of dry ingredients.
- Continue this until all of the ingredients are combined.
- Fold in the fruit.
- Pour the mixture into your muffin cases and sprinkle a little Caster Sugar and Cinnamon on top of each one.
- Pop into the over for around 25 minutes or until a knife comes away clean when inserted.
