Make them fruity by adding raspberries or blueberries for a healthy breakfast. Serve with your favorite coffee and enjoy a leisurely breakfast or brunch.
How to Make
After adding the grated apple, add ¾ cup fresh raspberries. Then fold through very gently to keep them whole. If fresh raspberries are unavailable you can substitute frozen. If you want your raspberries to remain whole, don’t thaw first.
Blueberries also taste great with apple. Follow the directions as for the raspberry muffins, but use fresh blueberries instead. If using frozen blueberries, thaw first then drain away the liquid.
What about a cinnamon treat? Top with cinnamon sugar for a cinnamon and apple combination.
To make the cinnamon topping mix together ¼ cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Sprinkle over the muffins then bake according to directions.
Or make them crunchy by adding a crumbly streusel topping.
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 teaspoons all-purpose / plain flour
½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon margarine
In a small bowl combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut in the margarine until crumbly.
Spoon over the top of the muffins and bake in the oven.
To keep these muffins healthy, use low fat margarine.
