Vegan Wholemeal Apple Muffins

These are perfect for when the elevenses hit and you need a sugar rush without the crash after. Full of fibre and protein, they're the perfect snack for the health-conscious sweet tooth!

Ingredients (serves 10)

125g wholemeal flour
125g plain self-raising flour
120g honey/agave nectar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
150 ml soya/almond/coconut milk

75 ml vegetable oil
30g chia seeds
1 tablespoon cinnamon powder
2 small cooking apples
(vegetable margarine for greasing tins)

I know that looks like quite a long list of ingredients, but don't freak out it's easy I promise!

I'm very impatient when it comes to baking

1) Measure the chia seeds into a bowl and stir in the dairy alternative milk of your choice. This should be allowed to soak as you prepare the other ingredients.
2) You have two choices for the apples. First peel them. Then you can either chop them up into small pieces as preparation of if you want a smoother texture for your muffins you can boil them chopped up, drain and mash. This should give you a paste.
3) Pour the honey, oil  and cinnamon into the bowl containing the apples and stir until evenly distributed.
4)Measure all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl and pour both the chia seed mix and apples mix into this. Now mix this thoroughly and add your dairy alternative milk if the texture is a little try, or more flour for the opposite. This is where I use intuition and receive slightly different results each time!
5) Spoon the mixture into 10 greased muffin trays/cases. They tend to stick so be careful if using paper cases so try and wipe a small amount of margarine on the inside of these.

Cook for 20-25 mins at 200 degrees C/Gas 6

ENJOY! Love Belles

P.S. I freeze a few and let them defrost throughout the day if I want one with me as a snack :) Just a wee extra tip for you there
