Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which is why I wanted to make a dish that is both tasty and gives me enough energy and nutrients to get me rearing to go for the day ahead. These muffins contain no flour, butter or sugar (I know what your thinking, how can it be good at all then? But believe me it can!). They are jam packed with all the good stuff. They are lovely hot or cold and you can serve them with lots of different things such as a dollop of yogurt, some fresh, chopped fruit, a drizzle of honey or just a steaming cup of coffee (Heaven, right?). I like to wrap mine individually and pop them in the freezer, then just defrost it quickly in the microwave. So easy.

Kick Start Muesli Muffins (Makes about 8-10 muffins)

1 cup apple sauce

4 eggs

1tsp vanilla extract

2tsp cinnamon

1 1/2tsp mixed spice

1/2tsp ground ginger, optional

1tsp baking powder

3 cups of your favorite muesli, or make you own using my muesli recipe

A Note about Variations:

You can vary the flavorings in this recipe so much. For example you don’t have to use 3 cups of muesli, you could use 3 cups oats and add whatever flavoring you want after that. Such as chocolate chip and coconut, banana and pecan or cranberry and orange. Also the spices are to my taste but feel free to chop and change them if you want.

  • Preheat your oven to 180ºc/350ºf and line 2 muffin tins with paper cases.
  • In a bowl, mix together the apple sauce, eggs and vanilla. Add the cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger, baking powder and muesli and mix it all together.
  • Distribute the mixture between the paper cases and bake in the oven for about 20-30mins or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let cool in the tin for 3-4mins then remove and devour.
