So… these muffins are awesome! A little bit of apple, a touch of almond, and a bang of cinnamon, and voilà, your home will never smell the same!


This is a diabetic recipe, but I have also included quantities for sugar as a replacement. If you want it naturally sweet and sugar ain’t your thing, honey will do just fine. I made my own home-made puree and used wholemeal self-raising flour for this recipe. I know right, totally bitchin’ 😉

You will need the following ingredients, to re-create these :

Serves 18 muffins

2 Cups of Wholemeal Self Raising Flour
2 Cups of Self Raising Flour
1 Cup of Sugar Substitute or 1 Cup of dark brown Sugar
1 1/3 of Skim Milk
280g of Apple Puree
4 x 50g eggs
2/3 Cup of slithered or sliced Almonds

Pre-heat the over to 160°C (Fan Forced)

Combine flours, cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl, and mix well.Image
In a separate medium bowl, add milk, apple puree and eggs and whisk well to together.

Add the liquid mixture from the medium bowl into the large bowl of flour. Mix until all ingredients are combined.

Stir almonds into the mixture.

Spoon mixture into lined  or greased muffin tin, to a little bit over 3/4 of the way.

Bake for approximately 18-20 minutes, until the muffins are lightly browned. To check that the muffins a cooked throughout, simply stick a skewer into a muffin, and if it comes out clean, it’s cooked.

Leave the muffins sitting in the pan for 5 minutes.

You then have the option to re-heat these muffins inside an oven at low temperature for up to 8 minutes. This will make the outer-layer of the muffin slightly crisp and the inside soft and delicious. They seem to taste nicer and nicer everyday.


If serving as a dessert, I recommend accompanying the muffins with a little bit of ‘no sugar added’ ice cream. If, for breakfast, serve with dab of light margarine. My daughter and husband, and, oh yeah… me, have almost devoured a whole muffin batch in a week. These Cinémuffins are pretty damn good, and are the perfect treat while snug inside on the couch watching a classic film.
