Easy paleo-style muffins sweetened with apple & banana and flavoured with Christmas Winter spices
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: Christmas
Serves: 12
  • 1 & ¼ cups ground almonds
  • Tsp ground mixed spice (mine a pre-mix containing cinnamon, coriander nutmeg, clove, pimento, ginger)
  • 1 medium ripe banana
  • 2 medium free range eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 1 grated apple (Braeburn or Gala best)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 175degrees C.
  2. Sieve the ground almonds (it provides a better cake texture) into a large mixing bowl along with the mixed spice.
  3. With a hand blender in a jug blend the banana, with the eggs and coconut oil.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry and combine well. Lastly stir in the grated apple.
  5. Spoon into cupcake cases, and bake in a cupcake tray in the oven for 15 minutes (you could also use a silicone tray which I prefer to do but I don’t have a general cupcake sized one).
  6. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
  7. The cupcakes freeze well, in an airtight container for future consumption.
