No Added Sugar Apple and Sultana Mini Muffins

If you're like me and often end up buying a bag of apples thinking 'maybe I'll feed them to my son' then chickening out because you once fed him apple and it ended up with a very scary choking incident, you have a lot of apples nearing the end of their life in your fruitbowl.

Anyway, here's the recipe to use up those apples, please try it, if anything they're more delicious than the sweet potato ones and even harder to detect there's no added sugar.

No Added Sugar Apple and Sultana Muffins - suitable for 9 months or so plus.  (Babies on finger foods.)  Also tasty for adults and older children.


1 apple, (don't peel it), coarsely grated back to the core, should be about 100g
2 eggs
4 tbsp milk
150g sultanas
2 tbsp vegetable oil
150g SR flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp mixed spice


Preheat the oven to 200 - 220 degrees centigrade.

Oil a cupcake or mini muffin tin.  I use spray oil and find if you use a silicone or non stick cupcake tin they come out fine, otherwise they stick to cupcake cases.
Mix the egg, apple, sultanas, milk and oil.  Put the flour and spices in a bowl then add the wet mixture mixing (don't overmix).  Put a generous dsp into the trays and bake for 15-17 minutes or until cooked (check to see if they spring back when pressed on the top.)

(Freeze well.)


  1. Just nibbling on some of these now. Yummy! Definitely not just for kids!

  2. My daughter is currently making appreciative nom nom nom noises whilst eating one of these. I found I had a little bit of mixture left as I think my muffin tin is a little smaller than average to instead of washing it all up to cook another couple of muffins I thought I'd try cooking them on a griddle like welsh cakes and they turned out really well too.

    1. Awesome idea! I'm glad these are going down so well with your daughter!
