Chunky Apple, Oat & Maple Muffins – Thermomix & regular


Do you love the smell of warm cinnamon on a cold rainy day? Mmmm, well then you might just love these because they are healthy, refined sugar free, Chunky Apple, Oat & Maple Muffins which are perfect for breakfast on the go, morning or afternoon tea or as a quick snack between after school activities and definitely tick all the lunch box boxes!  If you don’t want them to be chunky you can just chop the apples finer depending on fussy needs!

Shall we get to the recipes then?  Regular first, then Thermomix ok?  BTW if you do want to make them sweeter by adding some sugar add 1/2 C brown sugar but I think they are just lovely without, the cinnamon, maple and apple make them sweet enough for me!

What you need:

1 1/3 C flour (I used 1 C spelt & 1/3 sorghum but whatever flour you like really just not SR)

1 C rolled oats

1 Tbsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 C milk

1 egg, lightly beaten

1/3 C melted butter

1/4 C maple syrup

2 apples (whatever is in the fruit bowl), peeled and finely diced

What you do:

Preheat the oven to 200 C and line a 12 hole muffin tin with patty pans

Combine the flour, oats, baking powder and cinnamon.

Make a well in the centre and add the egg, milk, butter and maple syrup and mix well

Stir in the chopped apples

Spoon the batter into the patty pans about 2/3 full

Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until they are golden and firm.  Cool in the tin for about 5 minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely – if you can wait that long!)

      A friend just made them and dolloped double cream on them which she said was delicious – will have to try them like that too!

    Thank you for this recipe!
    It’s become one of my daughter’s faves and it’s so handy to freeze some to have for quick school snack options.
    I’m so grateful that there’s so many amazing women who are doing such great groundwork by working these recipes out and sharing them, allowing me to follow them to a tee so I don’t stuff it up! ?

    These are great! I have tweaked it slightly: I melt the butter first (80 degrees, sp 1, 2 mins) and also I leave the skin on the apples for extra nutrition (and because of my laziness)! I also use 2 eggs instead of 1 and I found that only 2 tsp baking powder is enough. Thanks for the inspiration!

      Thanks for tweaks, they sound good and I’m so glad you like them.
