Apple & Cinnamon Muffins
These Apple & Cinnamon Muffins make the perfect addition to any breakfast, snack or as a healthy treat to pack in the kids lunchbox. They are sweetened with apple, cinnamon and maple syrup.
Apples are rich in fibre that is needed to support a healthy digestive system. They contain pectin which is a type of prebiotic that feeds the good bacteria in our gut. Apples also contain vitamin A and C which boost immunity.

½ teaspoon baking soda
Pinch himilayan salt
1/3 cup olive oil

In a separate bowl, combine the olive oil, maple syrup and eggs. Beat together and then add in the yogurt.

Bake the muffins for 15-20 minutes, or until the muffins are golden on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
