Reduced Sugar Apple and Oat Muffins

Reduced Sugar Apple and Oat Muffins are perfect for a school lunchbox or after school treat!. Now these muffins aren’t very sweet because we have substituted the sugar for apple puree. But it is healthy and delicious and the rolled oats give the muffin a nice texture!

We substitute sugar in this recipe for apple puree. You can either buy it pre-bought (you can get it in a large jar from the sauce section of your supermarket) – or you can make your own by placing small apple slices (no skin) and a little water in the microwave for 10 minutes, then blending until it is smooth.

Serve them warm with some butter and syrup.
