I was craving something sweet this afternoon, and I noticed that I had heaps of green apples leftover, so I decided to make my own unique version of a sugar-free, low calorie apple and cinnamon muffin.
No joke these muffins took 10 minutes to prepare, and now they are in the oven, baking away. Talk about a super easy and quick recipe.
They are vegan, as recently I have decided to avoid eggs and butter due to health reasons.
Ingredients 1 cup wholemeal spelt flour
¼ rolled oats
2 tbsp. coconut oil
½ cup SweetMe (natural sweetener)
1 medium green apple, diced
½ tsp. baking soda
¼ cup mashed avocado
Pinch of Himalayan salt
Pinch of cinnamon
½ tsp. vanilla essence
2 flax eggs
Prepare the oven at 150 degrees Celsius
Make flax eggs (2 tbsp. flaxseeds, 6 tbsp. water)
Add the spelt flour, oats, coconut oil, chopped apple, natvia, avocado, salt, cinnamon, vanilla essence. Mix through together
Add flax eggs to the bowl and mix everything together
Prepare baking sheet with baking powder. Pour another ½ cup oats in a separate bowl, which you can use to roll the mini muffins in before baking
Out of this batch, I made 8 mini muffins and baked them for 20 minutes in the oven at 150 degrees Celsius
Garnish them with a walnut!
Because these muffins contain quite a few carbohydrates and healthy fats, if you’re trying to lose weight, definitely enjoy just one piece. Alternatively, you could enjoy two pieces, and make it your afternoon tea, dipped in some cold-pressed unsweetened almond milk.
One piece of these deliciously healthy, chewy, moist mini muffins equals only 143.5 calories, so enjoy moderately!
I think they are best enjoyed as a morning or afternoon tea snack, even a before bed snack. Or you could have two for breakfast with a protein shake or some almond milk, for a brekkie on the go!
