Craving some freshly baked goods? Make these fruity apple spice muffins in just 15 minutes.
2 1/2 cups (313 g) whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons (10 mL) baking powder
2 teaspoons (10 mL) baking soda
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) allspice
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) nutmeg
2 teaspoons (10 mL) cinnamon
1 large pear or apple
1 can unsweetened pineapple juice concentrate
1 tablespoon (15ml) vanilla
1 cup (250 mL) smooth unsweetened applesauce, such as Mott’s Fruitsations Apple Unsweetened
fruit snack (2 x 111g cups)
Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Butter muffin tins or use paper liners. Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Grate pear or apple into bowl and toss to coat.
Combine thawed pineapple concentrate, applesauce and eggs.
Pour into the dry ingredients and quickly stir well.
Fill tins 2/3–3/4 full and bake apple spice muffins for 16-18 minutes.
NOTE: The high fruit content of this batter reacts with the baking soda to create light muffins even though they use whole wheat flour! Serve with additional sauce to dip and a smear of almond butter.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
