    • 75g butter melted and cooled slightly
    • 175ml full fat milk
    • 85g porridge oats

    • 125 plain flour

    • 1tsp cinnamon

    • Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4

    • In a bowl mix together the Kerrygold butter, milk, egg and sugar

    • In a separate bowl sieve together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt and then stir in the oats (reserving a few to sprinkle on top of each muffin), apples and orange zest

    • Pour the wet ingredients onto the flour mixture and fold together as quickly as possible trying not to over mix (over mixing will result in a heavy muffin instead of a light one)

    • When everything is mixed together, pour the mixture into muffin cups , ¾ fill each one, sprinkle the reserved oats on top and bake for 20 -25 minutes until well risen and golden brown
