Got the sudden urge to bake? These slightly sweet, slightly spicy apple muffins pack a flavourful punch and can be made with common ingredients found in your pantry! You don’t even need to leave the house.
We, of course, couldn’t help but inject our infamous chai spices into these fluffy bundles of heaven. Start baking now and try it for yourself...
- 1 ¾ cups of flour (I used a combination of plain wheat flour and buckwheat flour)
- 1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
- ½ teaspoon of baking soda
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- 3 teaspoons of Chai Baking Spice
- 1 apple, grated
- 1 apple, finely diced
- ⅓ cup of sultanas
- ⅓ cup of melted coconut oil
- ½ cup of maple syrup
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup of natural yoghurt
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
STREUSEL TOPPING (optional)
- ¼ cup of rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons of flour
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder
- ¼ cup of coconut sugar
- ¼ cup of coconut oil at room temperature
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt & Chai Baking Spice.
- Add the grated and diced apple, and the sultanas and stir to combine
- In a separate bowl combine the coconut oil and maple syrup and beat well with a whisk. Next, add the eggs and beat well. Finally, add the yogurt and vanilla and mix well.
- Pour the wet mixture over the dry and mix gently with a big spoon until just combined.
- Divide mixture evenly into 12 regular sized muffins using a greased or lined muffin tin.
- If making the streusel, simply combine all ingredients and rub together with clean fingers to combine to make a crumbly but wet mixture. Sprinkle the streusel evenly over each muffin.
- Bake approximately 13-16 minutes or until the muffins are lightly golden and a toothpick inserted, comes out clean.
- Allow muffins to cool on a wire rack. The muffins will be good for 2-3 days at room temperature but freeze really well for up to 3 months.
