Lightly spiced with cinnamon, these apple cinnamon muffins can be prepared in just 15 minutes.

Unlike our apple muffins (opens in new tab) recipe, these muffins are made with wholewheat flour, giving them a much denser texture. They are also packed with honey and raisins for extra sweetness. The natural yogurt makes these apple cinnamon muffins moist.


  • 175g (6oz) oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 175g (6oz) wholewheat flour
  • 470g jar apple puree
  • 1 eating apple, diced
  • 4 egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 200ml (7fl oz) honey
  • 200g (7oz) raisins
  • 150ml low fat natural yogurt
  • Low fat buttery spread




  1. Sieve dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl. Add apple puree, diced apple, egg whites, honey, raisins and yogurt. Stir gently until all the flour is incorporated.
  2. Pour batter into 12 greased muffin tins.
  3. Bake in pre-heated oven 180C, 350F, Gas 4 for 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve warm or cold, cover with a low fat buttery spread
