Apple-licious Muffins

“A delicious muffin for all ages to enjoy the goodness of apples and raisins.”

Yields: 12 muffins


  • 2 cups spelt flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda (non-aluminium)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • ½ large apple, peeled & diced (I prefer Macintosh)
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¾ cup applesauce (homemade or jarred)
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 TBSP sunflower seed oil (plus some extra to coat each muffin tin)


  1. Gather all ingredients for your working space and preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Prepare muffin tray with a light coating of oil (applied with a small piece of paper towel, or a clean finger). You may use paper liners, though I feel the oil in the tray works best.
  3. In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients gently with a spatula.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Add to the dry and gently stir with the spatula until the flour is all wet.
  5. Distribute batter into muffin tray and bake for 18-22 minutes, until tops are doomed and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  6. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days on the counter (up to 7 days in the fridge).
