Moist muffins with the lovely warmth of speculaas spice mix and sticky apples on top. A real big hit in my house.
Apple-Speculaas Muffins (12 muffins)
inspired on “Leon Ingredients & Recipes”
1/3 cup neutral tasting oil (for example rapeseed, rice bran)
1/3 + 1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce (from ~1,5 large apple)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup bran
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp speculaas spices
pinch of salt
handful chopped walnuts
1/2 apple chopped in small cubes, mixed with a little brown sugar and speculaas spices
Preheat the oven to 175C. Line a muffin pan with paper cups.
Whisk eggs, oil, apple sauce, vanilla and brown sugar together.
In a separate bowl, mix flour, bran, baking soda, baking powder, spices and salt.
Mix dry and wet ingredients until just mixed. Stir in the walnuts.
Spoon the batter in the prepared muffin cups. Top each one with a spoonful of chopped apple.
Cook for about 30 minutes in the preheated oven. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
