Muffins are great any time of the day for breakfast, lunch or tea, they are also fun to make together as a family.
While store bought muffins may be loaded with sugar and refined flours and oil, making your own means you can choose to add healthy whole grains and reduce the sugar by using apples in a healthier version.
These organic muffins combine pectin-rich apples, fibre-rich spelt and other excellent organic ingredients in a healthy treat.
