Cherry and Apricot Muffins

Prep Time: 10 mins Cooking Time: 25 mins

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup (187ml) vegetable oil
  • 2 medium eggs, whisked
  • 1 cup (250ml) thick natural full-fat vanilla yoghurt
  • 1/3 cup (83ml) maple syrup, or fruit purée
  • 2 cups (250g) wholemeal plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup (175g) cherries
  • ½ cup (75g) dried apricots, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup (67g) oats
  • ¼ cup (30g) granola to sprinkle on top (optional, but may not be suitable if baby is under 12 months if it contains honey – alternatively you could make your own from the recipe at the start of this section)

Instructions

1

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease or line a 12-hole muffin tray with cases

2

In a bowl, mix together the oil, eggs, yoghurt, and maple syrup

3

Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture - whisk to combine

4

Gently fold the cherries, apricots and oats into the mixture

5

Divide the mixture evenly between the muffin cases and top with the granola, if desired

6

Bake your muffins in the oven for 15-25 minutes, or until golden brown and a knife comes out clean from the centre to show that they are cooked through

7

Serve once cooled.

These muffins are simply divine; the moist sweetness of the cherries, mixed with the hints of chewy apricot, send you to heaven with every bite. The wholemeal flour and natural sugars make this tasty treat a lot less naughty than you would imagine.
