If you are new here let me give you some vital information about my daughter. She is adorable and smart and beautiful and witty and funny but God she is such a fussy eater and I struggle most times to find things she will actually eat without winging for half an hour that she doesn’t like it before even trying what’s on her plate.Β  ‍♀️

Give her chips, crisps, chocolate or ice cream and she will never complain but honestly I am making efforts in giving her healthy food and offering fruits instead of sugary sweets.

Obviously I don’t always win but to up my game I discovered a different type of treat. My magical muffins. They are not extremely sweet, they have fruits and my little one loves them.

They are so easy to make, not to mention quick and they are so good in the morning if she refuses breakfast


250 gr Plain Flour (all purpose)

2 teaspoons baking powder

150g caster sugar

75g light brown sugar

140ml buttermilk

125ml vegetable oil

1 tablespoon runny honey

2 medium eggs

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Apples – around 300g unpeeled and uncored

Preheat the oven at 200 C and line a 12 hole muffin tin with cases.

Peel and cut the apples in small pieces (also take the core out)

Grab a bowl and mix the dry ingredients together – flower, baking powder, cinnamon and sugars

In a jug crack the eggs and whisk with the buttermilk and vegetable oil and honey.

Mix into the dry ingredients without worrying much about the lumps. It is all perfectly normal. At last, add the apples and mix all.of it together.

Divide the mixture into the twelve cases and sprinkle some brown sugar on top

Bake for about twenty minutes and you get deliciously gorgeous muffins that your little one will love. And why not you as well?
