I love creating new recipes especially baked treats.  My children love these muffins and they are  perfect as a healthy breakfast or snack. Ideal for packed lunches too.  Don’t be afraid of using courgettes in cakes – they provides a lovely subtle sweetness and keep the muffins wonderfully moist. The addition of apples gives these muffins sweetness and lots of fibre.  I add a lot of cinnamon – I love the warmth of this spice and its known to help balance blood sugar and improve insulin function.  By using almonds these pack a lot of healthy fats and protein too and of course keep these grain free and paleo friendly.  Instead of fresh apple you could use a handful of chopped dried apple too. Delicious
