Preparation

How to make gluten free and vegan apple muffins

To prepare vegan apple muffins start preheating the oven to 180°C (160° fan).

Line a 12-hole muffin or cupcake tin with paper cases.

Melt the margarine in a saute pan set over a medium heat.

Add the apple and saute until soft and golden, about 6-8 minutes.

Remove from the heat and set aside.

Briefly whisk together the apple puree, almond milk, sugar, sunflower oil, vanilla, and ground flaxseed mixture in a large mixing bowl.

Add the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, and salt, and fold well until a rough batter forms.

Add the sautéed apple and fold again to incorporate.

Divide the batter between the paper cases and top each with a walnut.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and slightly risen; a cake tester should come out clean from their centres.

Remove the vegan apple muffins to a wire rack to cool before serving with a light dusting of icing sugar on top.
