15. Gingerbread Apple Muffins
Spices, seasonal apples and muffin dough, what’s not to love? Adding fruit to sweet foods such as cakes and muffins has always been a favourite of ours. Doing so adds vitamins and fibre to what we all know is a treat, but since it’s Christmas, we still want to indulge. Adding spice such as ginger gives a little warmth too, and there’s nothing better when it’s cold and dark.
We love a muffin as a Christmas morning lazy breakfast, after we’ve unwrapped our presents and before the chaos of a big family Christmas roast begins a little later. To make things even easier, these Gingerbread Apple Muffins can be made a day or two before and because they contain coconut sugar and molasses, rather than refined sugar, they won’t spike blood sugar levels as dramatically.
We hope you enjoy these low sugar muffins as much as we did when experimenting with healthy recipes for Christmas – and there’s only one thing left… We wish you a merry Christmas, and a happy new year!
