  • 100 grams Apple Sauce
  • 50 ml Sunflower Oil
  • 50 grams Brown Sugar
  • 100 grams Self-Raising Flour
  • 3/4 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 Small Apple peeled + grated

For the crumble:

  • 30 grams Plain Flour
  • 30 grams Rolled Oats
  • 20 grams Coconut Oil
  • 20 grams Caster Sugar


  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line a muffin pan with 6 muffin cases and set aside.
  • In a large bowl mix together the applesauce, sunflower oil and brown sugar with a wooden spoon.
  • Gradually add the flour, baking powder, and spices to the bowl, folding the mixture after each addition. Stir in the grated apple.
  • Divide the muffin mixture between the 6 muffin cases. Prepare the crumble in a small bowl by mixing together the ingredients with your fingers. Divide the crumble mixture evenly on top of the muffins.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until the crumble is slightly golden. Leave to cool slightly before enjoying!


  • The weight of my grated apple was 70 grams. If you have somewhere in the region of 60-80 grams this is fine, but make sure to adjust the baking time as necessary to account for a slightly wetter/drier batter.
  • The muffins are best enjoyed warm from the oven, but will keep in a covered container for up to 5 days.
