The Recipe (makes 6 large muffins):
1 egg. beaten
40 g Xylitol
120 ml rice milk
50 g butter, melted
200 g refined spelt flour
7.5 ml baking powder
pinch of salt
2.5 ml ground cinnamon
2 small organic eating apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped
For the topping: Ground cinnamon
Cook's tip: Do not over mix the muffin mixture - it should be lumpy.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Mix the egg, xylitol, milk and melted butter in a large bowl. Sift in the spelt, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add the chopped apple and mix roughly. Spoon the mixture into muffin tins. Sprinkle ground cinnamon over muffins. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until well risen and golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
