Apple Crumble Muffins

I wanted to come up with a not overly sweet breakfast muffin using apples as I had an abundance of them!

These Apple Crumble Muffins are low calorie, light & quick to create & bake.
You will need:
125g wholemeal sr flour
1 banana, mashed
1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
Pinch of salt
Cinnamon Stick
2 peeled & sliced apples
1/4 cup water
100ml Almond Breeze Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
Handful of quick oats
6 sticks of Natvia or sweetener of your choice
Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.

In a saucepan on a medium heat stir water, sliced apples & cinnamon stick & cook until tender.

In a separate bowl add flour, salt, mashed banana, coconut oil, 3 of the Natvia sachets and almond milk. 

Once well combined add the cooked apples, remembering to remove the cinnamon stick and mix lightly.

Place a heaped tablespoon into each patty pan, you should yield 12 out of this recipe.

Sprinkle some of the oats on top of each muffin with more Natvia. Bake for 20 minutes or until ‘crumble’ has browned well.
These contain 1.5g of fat, 2.3g of fibre & 5g of sugar each. 77 calories per muffin.

24 Days of Salad: Radish & Apple Slaw

Easy to prepare & comes together in a matter of minutes. Perfect for a 30 degree evening too!

Combine a couple of cups of pre-made coleslaw with a handful of walnuts. Cut up two large radishes & add to the slaw. 
Slice a medium size apple & add to the mix (I used a Pink Lady). 
For a dressing I mixed 2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard & 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar & a few drops olive oil. 

Combine the ingredients with your desired amount of dressing and heap onto a serving plate.
Great as a meal or side salad.
